What is WWF doing about it?

Pollution from burning fossil fuels (oil, coal, gas) is the single biggest source of greenhouse gases causing climate change. Other main sources are deforestation, agriculture and land-use change. This is why WWF is putting its weight behind efforts to change the way we use energy – without depriving people of the right to thrive – and aiming for a complete phase-out of fossil fuels by 2050 and 100% renewable energy.

With our partners, we work to:

  • Empower communities to supply renewable energy and protect forests
  • Promote a transition to 100% renewable energy
  • Help businesses cut emissions, keep deforestation out of their products and go green
  • Promote investment in renewables and divestment from fossil fuels
  • Achieve ambitious targets and laws with government


Join us in working toward a future where people, places and species exist happily and healthily within the limits of our planet’s resources, in a fair, low-carbon society that can withstand climate change.

Take the pledge and shine a light on climate action.
