Tackling the climate and nature crisis needs everyone to be on board, including businesses. We work to engage and influence the private sector to help find the solutions and drive the action we desperately need – for people and planet.
One of the ways we work with businesses is through strategic partnerships, where we might work with a company to reduce their environmental impact; advocate together to move whole sectors towards better ways of doing business; raise money to support our global conservation programmes; or reach new audiences to inspire them in the fight for our world.
Will you join us?
Please note, WWF only works with businesses that are committed to positive environmental action and we always follow a thorough due diligence process before entering any partnership.
Let's fight for our world together
Tackling the climate emergency, feeding the growing global population, reversing the catastrophic decline in biodiversity: we can’t do any of these things alone.
That’s why we need partnerships. Bold, innovative partnerships that pioneer better ways of doing business. Big, ambitious partnerships that take conservation to a whole new level. Partnerships that transform industries and rethink systems, that mobilise millions and make everyday life more sustainable.
We’re uniquely placed to partner with businesses and other organisations that want to fight for our world. We’re an influential international voice on many of the biggest issues facing the planet, and our name and panda logo are known and trusted by millions of people all over the world.
A partnership with WWF can deliver huge impact. With our experience and expert knowledge, we can offer new insights to shared problems. At the same time, we’re active on the ground in more than 100 countries, working day-in, day-out to protect and restore nature in some of the world’s most precious places – as well as right here in the UK.
As the world wakes up to the economic risks attached to climate change and the destruction of nature, businesses must make themselves fit for the sustainable economy of the future.
Already, the loss of services that nature used to provide for free is costing the global economy trillions of pounds every year.
If we’re going to tackle the big problems facing our world, we need to transform whole sectors and help businesses achieve a net-positive impact on the planet.
Through our partnerships, we work with businesses to innovate and co-create the game-changing solutions we need at scale.
Public awareness about the climate and nature emergency has never been higher and consumers are increasingly looking for ways to take action.
Whether it’s making planet-friendly changes to their everyday routines, marching to send a message to the government, or changing the brands they buy based on their environmental impact, our partnerships are inspiring people to fight for their world.
We want to work with companies that are ready to help us get our urgent message into people’s daily lives. Together we can change attitudes and behaviours by showing people why nature should matter to us all. We can inspire them to take action and give them opportunities to join the fight.
More people are looking to work for companies – and stay with them – that have an environmental or social purpose beyond just making a profit.
If the people in your business are passionate about nature, wild species and the fight for their world, we can provide inspiring ways for them to get involved and take action.
We have expertise in working with companies large and small, designing packages of fun fundraising activities and challenge events to support our conservation projects in the UK and around the world.
And we offer training opportunities and materials to educate your leaders of tomorrow and inspire innovation.
Advocacy and thought leadership
Businesses have a powerful voice. From influencing their industries to speaking out on critical issues and reaching hundreds of millions of consumers, we inspire businesses to join us and use their voice to fight for our world.
Many businesses already understand that their own future depends on nature. They know they can’t prosper in a world of degraded natural resources, climate change and broken societies.
They also recognise that, while businesses and consumers have the power to make a big difference, in many cases real change can only happen if governments step in.
We need authorities to level the playing field for businesses that do the right thing, and put the right policies and regulations in place to make sustainable business practices the norm.
That’s why we work alongside forward-thinking businesses, and other organisations, to campaign for change.
