WWF has a range of sustainability initiatives to support this goal. We aim to bring sustainability to production, trade and human consumption.

By working with business and industry, we are able to educate and act as sustainability advisors, recommending alternative methods of operation. By reviewing and optimising your company’s supply chain or substituting a sustainable product, you can significantly reduce the impact your business has on the environment.

WWF encourages reform across many businesses and industries. Some of the most prominent include:

By thinking about the everyday choices you make – at home, when shopping, when travelling or at work – you can change the way you live to reduce your personal footprint but also to ensure that, together, we live within the Earth’s means.

After years of WWF campaigning about the threat of climate change, most notably through the Earth Hour initiative, many people are well aware of the impact they can have around the home. Simple changes to energy and water use can dramatically reduce your footprint. But what many people don’t yet realise is that the food we consume, the clothes and groceries we buy and our travel destinations all contribute to our ecological footprint.
