Creating Impact Through Dialogue, Partnerships and Investments
The World Climate Foundation specialises in bringing public and private decision-makers together with the purpose of heightening ambition and deploying sustainable policies, investments and solutions - informed by science, best practice and experience.
Through our impact platforms, we work on achieving impact in order to accelerate commitments into collective action toward a net-zero, nature-positive and resilient world.
Since 2010 we have worked with and engaged a network of global leaders and multi-sector stakeholders to combine the expertise and action needed, focusing on creating ambition loops through public-private partnerships.
Addressing Every Need
There is a narrowing window of opportunity to halve emissions to ensure that global temperatures stay within the limits of the Paris Agreements on Climate Change for net-zero before 2050. And while the biodiversity and biosecurity arenas are still building institutions for target setting and public-private collaboration, the threats of these crises are nonetheless just as imminent and important.
Major stakeholders need to work in partnership over the next decade to transform to cleaner industries and solutions for the climate and biodiversity crises. Increased pressure from new generations of consumers and voters and the emergence of new technologies and disruptive business models are market drivers for change in an otherwise slow but needed political process of change.
Our mission is to facilitate the economic transition to a net-zero, nature-positive and healthy planet through cross-sector dialogue, inspirational partnerships and investments in sustainable solutions.
The aim is for the World Climate Foundation to have a systematic impact on the global transition to a net-zero, safe and clean economy. The World Climate Foundation was established to do just that. We develop and run environmental impact platforms in line with the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals, providing an international growth engine for new impact organisations that can accelerate the transition of businesses and markets.
We recognise that to confront the climate and biodiversity crises we need faster action and delivery. Our vision is a decade from 2020 to 2030 where climate and sustainability commitments are transformed via actions into impact that align with the required outcomes of the Paris Agreement on Climate Change and the Sustainable Development Goals.
A key asset of the World Climate Foundation is a curated and growing network of 70,000 relevant, high-level international decision-makers, that are actively motivated to participate in the rapid transition to a net-zero economy. Of those, the World Climate Foundation holds a number of long-term partnerships with globally leading governments, businesses, investors and international organisations.
World Climate Foundation
The World Climate Foundation is a Danish not-for-profit foundation, where the proceeds from its activities can only be handed out to societal purposes as stipulated in its charter. This motivates the Foundation to act as an independent mediator and trustworthy platform across many legitimate interests. The Foundation is governed by the Danish Foundation Act and is regularly audited for its not-for-profit operations on an accounted cost basis.
