Board of Directors
WWF-Australia is governed by a Board of Directors with a demonstrated commitment to nature conservation. The Board shapes our strategic direction and policy, oversees performance and compliance, and promises effective governance and leadership on behalf of Governors and supporters.
It also ensures that we comply with corporation laws and the requirements of the Australian Securities and Investment Commission.
WWF-Australia has around 80 Governors, who are considered the voting members of WWF-Australia. They are appointed because of their standing in the community, their commitment to WWF’s mission, and their ability to contribute to the success of our programs in Australia and the Oceania region.
Our Governors act as our champions.
They bring a range of skills, influence and expertise from backgrounds in science and research, business, public relations, marketing, law and governance. Many Governors also contribute to internal working groups and provide valuable strategic advice across the organisation.
Our Governors are initially appointed for a four-year term, which can be renewed.
WWF-Australia always strives to act with integrity, to behave ethically and to work effectively under legal regulations and agreements.
We have strict governance structures and policies in place to ensure the organisation is open and accountable. One example is to produce our Annual and Sustainability reports, which include full financials.
WWF-Australia has carefully designed policies to make sure that strategic, operational, legal, reputational and financial risks are identified. These policies assess, manage and monitor those risks.
