By establishing the World Climate Foundation, our aim is to create an organisation that will have systemic impact on the global transition to a low-carbon and clean economy
Developing and running environmental impact platforms in line with the Paris Agreement and the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals
Providing an international growth engine for new impact organisations that can accelerate the transition businesses and markets in line with environmental stewardship
Current global issues are inevitably seen through the lens of the ongoing pandemic, including global warming and loss of biodiversity. Focus on how we lay the foundations for the world to emerge safer and more resilient on all fronts.
10 years exist to ensure that global temperatures stay within the limits of the Paris Agreements on Climate Change. While the biodiversity arena still needs to build basic institutions for target setting and public-private collaboration, the threats from loss of biodiversity are nonetheless just as imminent.
Cross-sector dialogue and partnerships in the environmental arenas will guarantee the world finds solutions.
Addressing Every Need
Major stakeholders need to work in partnership over the next decade to create cleaner industries and solutions for the emerging climate crisis. Increased pressure from new generations of people and voters, and emergence of new technologies and disruptive business models are adding speed from the marketplace to an otherwise slow political process of change.
People will increasingly formulate demands with the aim to influence governments and businesses policies.
Climate policies will be moving from the international level to the regional and national levels.
Businesses will be going from strategic positioning to real de-carbonization.
Investors will be required to clean-up existing and establish sustainable investment portfolios.
Our mission is to catalyse a faster transition to a clean and net-zero economy through cross-sector dialogue, innovative partnerships, and investments in sustainable solutions.
A future where pledges and commitments are transformed via actions into impact that align with the required outcomes of the Paris Agreement and the Sustainable Development Goals
