BCG’s Partnership with WWF

The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) is one of the world’s largest and most experienced independent conservation organizations, with over 5 million supporters and a global network active in more than 100 countries. WWF’s approach aims to deliver innovative solutions that meet the needs of both people and nature.

Since we launched our global partnership with WWF in 2012, we have embarked on numerous projects—globally, regionally, and locally—in support of its mission to stop the degradation of the planet’s natural environment and build a future in which people live in harmony with nature.

We have been proud to support WWF’s efforts toward a New Deal for Nature and People, and to collaborate on topics ranging from forests to oceans, from sustainable finance to environmental policy, and from advocacy climate to biodiversity. We have mobilized BCG’s digital capabilities to accelerate WWF’s impact through initiatives such as OpenSC for supply chain transparency and an early warning system to prevent deforestation. We have also supported some of its world-changing partnerships, such as the Science-Based Targets initiative.

On the regional and local levels, we have assisted WWF's four largest offices—US, UK, Netherlands, and Germany—in developing transformation roadmaps of their own. And in Hong Kong, BCG worked with WWF on its Low Carbon Manufacturing Programme (LCMP), which seeks to reduce manufacturers' carbon footprint. BCG assisted LCMP on strengthening existing customer relationships and on preparing sales material to attract new customers. As a result, LCMP is expected to shift from requiring additional funding to becoming financially self-sustaining.
