Description

Description The WWF Climate Business Network supports businesses on their path to align with a 1.5°C world and achieve net-zero emissions by no later than 2050. We do this by providing connecting members to WWF’s global network and expertise, provide opportunities for peer-to-peer learning and sharing of best practices to find solutions to common challenges. The Network is also an incubator for sectorial and value chain climate initiatives as well as a global communications channel for achievements. The companies taking the most ambitious action are named WWF Climate Savers.

As a background: Climate Savers was founded in 1999 and has during the last two years been restructured into the Climate Business Network, while keeping Climate Savers and the top tier."
