WWF - World Wide Fund For Nature

— filed under:

The mission of WWF - World Wide Fund For Nature - is to stop the degradation of the planet's natural environment and to build a future in which humans live in harmony with nature, by: conserving the world's biological diversity; ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable; and promoting the reduction of pollution and wasteful consumption. The European Policy Office helps shape EU policies that impact on the European and global environment.

Why does WWF work on the EU level?

The EU is responsible for approximately 80% of environmental laws in the member states and for policies such as agriculture, fisheries, regional aid, climate and energy, trade and development cooperation. The WWF European Policy Office advocates on the EU level for a more sustainable future for people and planet.

The EU is also a major player in international environmental and development agreements - such as the 2030 UN Agenda for Sustainable Development, the UN Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) and its recently agreed Paris Agreement. It is also active in many other international arenas that affect nature conservation and environmental sustainability worldwide, such as the World Trade Organisation.
