WWF's mission is to stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which people live in harmony with nature, by: conserving the world's biological diversity; ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable; promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption.

WWF works with a wide range of stakeholders from government officials, parliamentarians, private sector partners to supporters and activists.

WWF-UK and the Sustainable Development Goals

WWF-UK was involved during the international negotiations for the SDGs at the United Nations and continues this work today. The focus is on:

  • Influencing UK government on sustainable development issues both in the UK and on what they should be supporting internationally
  • Collaborating and learning with other WWF offices around the world engaged on similar initiatives in their own countries
  • Programmes in UK including Celtic Sea Partnership; managing rivers and streams and advocating for better climate, energy policy; national sustainable development policies and legal frameworks; sustainable supply chains and resource stewardship including timber, fish, water, extractives; sustainable finance
