Global Impact 

The World Climate Foundation drives and facilitates the necessary multi-sector collaboration to accelerate partnerships and investments in green economy, nature-based solutions and technological innovations, tackling both biodiversity loss and climate change while creating economic opportunities. 

Through collaboration between private and public sectors with governments and policymakers, our platforms provide opportunities to consolidate and implement global regulations and frameworks aiming at mitigation and adaptation to climate change, conservation and restoration of biodiversity, as well as developing and enhancing global pandemic prevention measures. 


Sectoral Impact 

By connecting key investment accelerators, asset owners and development banks with solution providers and developers, we work on accelerating the necessary climate and nature finance to achieve the targets of the Paris Agreement, the new Global Biodiversity Framework and the upcoming global pandemic treaty. This approach mitigates the risk of stranded assets and creates new business opportunities with positive outcomes for nature across various sectors.

Our Networks offer valuable insights into the transition plans necessary for sustainable development of industries. Our summits and other partner activities provide a platform for industry leaders to collaborate and develop on joint solutions and innovations for a faster transition to a net-zero and resilient economy.

Climate Investments for Emerging and Dev

"The transformation from fossil fuels to renewables is crucial for reaching the 1.5°C target. Yet, investment levels are still far too low to increase the production capacity to anywhere near what is necessary, especially in emerging markets. KLP is investing in renewable infrastructure globally and has until today contributed to financing the construction of nearly 50 new renewable power plants. We are committed to continuing these investments with around US$600 million annually. We expect these investments to continue generating attractive returns and have a strong climate impact".
