WWF is an organization for nature conservation committed to halting the degradation of our planet's natural environment and building a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, focusing into two broad areas: (i) conservation of biodiversity for the generations to come; and (ii) reduction of human ecological footprint.
The organization is focusing its global efforts on 13 Global Initiatives including:
- Climate and energy with focus on low carbon development and climate policy, clean and smart energy, forests and climate, climate finance, and climate business engagement.
- Market Transformation focusing on environmental challenges linked to the production and consumption of basic commodities. This involves working with major companies and their supply chains to change the way key global commodities are produced, processed, consumed and financed worldwide.
