The WWF Nedbank Green Trust seeks out the following elements in our projects:

  • The project must align with WWF’s strategy. Every WWF Nedbank Green Trust project must align with and contribute towards the WWF 2025 Strategy: Click Here. This is the first filter that we put every proposal through. If it doesn’t align, it will not be funded.
  • The project must be evidence-based as WWF is an evidence-based organisation. We want to see that your approach and idea is based on good evidence. That means that you must have science, case studies, and/or previous project experience to support your approach.
