A new key biodiversity platform for cross sectoral collaboration
For its inaugural launch, World Biodiversity Summit will help define what world leaders and the private sector in biodiversity and climate action need to do in the medium and long term to achieve sustainable development and hinder further biodiversity loss, focusing on partnerships and investment mechanisms as levers of progress. World Biodiversity Summit is a platform for responding to accelerating biodiversity loss, by using the Paris Agreement as a framework to learn from, promoting relevant solutions, innovations, and leadership networks, strengthening nature restoration and conservation. Nature-based solutions will be highlighted, from specificecosystems to global possibilities.
By establishing the World Climate Foundation as a commercial foundation, our aim is to create an organisation that will have systemic impact on the global transition to a low-carbon and clean economy through two distinct methods:
by developing and running environmental impact platforms in line with the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
an international growth engine for new impact enterprises that can help transition businesses and markets in line with environmental stewardship
Joint Ambition and Action to Achieve a Net-Zero, Nature-Positive and Healthy Planet
The World Climate Foundation is the biggest and most influential global platform focusing on action and impact on climate, biodiversity and health resilience.
For over a decade, we have facilitated large-scale collaboration between governments, businesses, financial institutions and international organisations, accelerating the transition to a green economy. Through creating powerful cross-sectoral partnerships we foster innovation and investment for sustainable solutions in the climate, biodiversity and health.
Turning Commitments Into Action
Our mission is to facilitate the economic transition to a net-zero, nature-positive and healthy planet through cross-sector dialogue, innovative partnerships and investments in sustainable solutions.
Our vision is a net-zero, nature-positive, and healthy planet by 2050. We aim to play a leading role in facilitating the global transitions we need in order to get there.
Our impact platforms are networks and coalitions where our members and partners build alliances and develop ambition loops for climate, biodiversity and health. Here they accelerate solutions, actions and investments toward the world’s most pressing environmental challenges.
