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

Partnerships are the key to overcoming the most crucial environmental threats of our time. This is why they are at the heart of the World Climate Foundation’s mission. We created unique high-level Impact Platforms for efficient cross-sector collaboration. Our members and partners engage with a world-leading network of governments, businesses, financial institutions and international organisations to create the ambition loops and generate investments and innovative solutions needed for the transition towards a net-zero, nature-positive and healthy planet.
Our Strategic Partners are pioneering international organisations seeking to engage with peer-group, high-level, global stakeholders. Through year-round agenda-setting, annual events and connecting with our global network, they achieve progress within their respective sectors from our transition pathway guidance, supporting their journey towards net-zero and nature-positive transformation.
