Partnerships FOR A LIVING PLANET

The corporate sector drives much of the global economy, so we consider that companies also have a specific responsibility to ensure that the natural resources and ecosystems that underpin their business are used sustainably.

Our Corporate Partners

How we work with our partners

As a non-profit organisation, we rely on support from the business sector to deliver programmes that complement state-led sustainability initiatives.

In return, we help our corporate partners across their sustainability journey, from strategy and implementation, to communication and dialogue. Our science-based solutions and diverse range of programmes empower organisations to make a positive impact and gain recognition for their valuable contribution in building a sustainable UAE.

We believe in partnerships that are a win-win for all.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is Emirates Nature-WWF?

A leading non-profit organisation, we work to conserve the UAE’s natural resources and heritage. We believe that our society, economy and environment can thrive side by side. A sustainable future is within our reach. But we have to work together to make it possible.

How are donations used at Emirates Nature-WWF?

As a non-profit, we greatly value donations from our government agencies, corporate partners and individuals.

These are used to fund a wide range of programmes in the UAE. Through our conservation projects, we support the protection and sustainable management of the land and sea. Our work in this area and our surveys of terrestrial and marine wildlife contribute to national policies. In our efforts to combat climate change, we shape policy and deliver science-based solutions that drive large-scale reduction in emissions. Our educational programmes are designed to inspire people – especially the country’s youth – to become future flag bearers for environmental sustainability.

Can my company make an in-kind donation?

Yes! In-kind donations offer valuable support to our work and allow us to scale up our impact. Over the years, businesses and organisations across the UAE have supported our programmes, our projects, and our offices in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with free or discounted services, consultations, equipment, participation, sponsorship and media inventory. Contact us for a list of ways in which your organisation can support our work.

How does Emirates Nature-WWF collaborate with the government?

Emirates Nature-WWF was founded in 2001 under the patronage of H.H. Sheikh Hamdan bin Zayed Al Nahyan, the Ruler’s Representative in the Al Dhafra Region and Chairman of the Governing Board of the Environment Agency–Abu Dhabi (EAD).

For close to two decades, we have collaborated closely with government organisations at the federal-level as well as with each of the seven emirates. We work to create science-based solutions to conserve and safeguard the seas, land and their associated biodiversity. Our work includes research and policy activities, community and corporate engagement, youth education and programmes to raise public awareness.
