​IT IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE TO OVERSTATE THE THREAT OF CLIMATE CHANGE

The science is absolutely clear, and frightening: if we don’t transform the way we use energy – rapidly and comprehensively – then we face catastrophic climate change. The level of global warming we’re heading for will cost countless lives, derail development and devastate the ecosystems upon which we all depend, and which WWF has fought so hard to protect.

If we act now, we can overcome the threat of climate change, and create a fairer and more sustainable world in which energy from efficient and renewable resources will cover the needs of all people. The solutions exist.

WWF’s climate and energy vision is a response both to the science and to new economic and political realities. Through its Climate & Energy Practice, we are focused on achieving climate resilient, low carbon developments at national level and with the corporate sector. International advocacy, including work with public and private finance, provides strong support for national action.
