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 BCG began partnering with WWF in 2012, we have embarked on numerous projects—globally, regionally, and locally—in support of its mission to stop the degradation of our planet's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature. 

On the global level, we have worked with the organization's leadership to develop WWF's "Truly Global" roadmap and implement a multiyear transformation that will change WWF's global funding model by shifting resources to strategic, long-term efforts. 

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.
