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
by promoting an international growth engine for new impact organisations that can help transition businesses and markets in line with environmental stewardship
These days most global issues are inevitably seen through the lens of the current pandemic, including global warming and loss of biodiversity. We must now 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 not get the world to the solutions in full. However, they are preconditions for a transformation that can shift the negative trends in the right direction. Additionally, they can position an impactful green recovery from the current economic situation into the limelight.
Catalyse the transition to a clean and low-carbon economy through cross-sector dialogue, inspirational partnerships, and investments in sustainable solutions.
A decade from 2020 to 2030 where climate and biodiversity commitments are transformed into impacts that align with the required outcomes.
