World Wildlife Fund (WWF)

World Wildlfe Fund is one of the world's largest independent conservation organizations and is active in over 100 countries.  WWF's focus has over the years evolved into an ambitious strategy to preserve biodiversity and achieve sustainable development across the globe.  The organization has been working on promoting energy efficiency in different industrial sectors. 

WWF funded the development of the report “A blueprint for a climate friendly cement industry” (WWF, 2008). Since 2000, WWF has been working with Lafarge, one of the largest cement producers in the world, to combine economic constraints, environmental and people respect in order to reduce Lafarge Group's environmental footprint. Also Lafarge and WWF have launched the environmental campaign named "Climate Savers - Let the clean economy begin" in which leading companies are committed to reduce their CO2 emissions. Once all parties agree that there is a basis for a successful partnership, an agreement is tailored to the specific circumstances and operating sector of each company. Reduction targets are set in absolute terms and within a defined timeframe. Targets and progress are reviewed on a regular basis and publicly communicated.
