Our supporters provide the strong foundation for us to invest in the future of conservation. Your trust and belief in WWF to make good decisions, both in the long- and short-term, is fundamental to our day-to-day operation.
Individual contributions account for more than half the money we raise each year to carry out our vital work, proving that however large or small the donation, it all adds up to substantial change.
We owe a debt of thanks to our supporters and business partners who dig deep and enable us to achieve long-lasting conservation results.

Whether it's at home or in the office, we believe that, together, we can all play a part in reducing our pressure on the environment. That’s why our commitment to the planet is not just embedded in the work that we do. It's also in the way that we do it.
WWF pays close attention to its own environmental footprint, including the way we operate our offices, the extent of our travel and our use of goods and services. We are constantly looking for ways to avoid impacts along our supply chain and to reduce our environmental footprint, or to offset any impacts we have. You can explore some of our personal targets and achievements below, and take a peek behind-the-scenes to find out what we've been up to.
Our Sustainability Report 2016 demonstrates our commitment to minimising our impact on the planet.

Our Code of Ethical Conduct commits all WWF-Australia Board members, staff members, volunteers and interns to the highest standards of honesty and transparency and we extend this commitment to our Partner Organisations.
Our Complaint Handling, Whistleblower, Conflict of Interest and Internal Investigation and Disciplinary Panel Procedures policies are freely available on WWF-Australia’s website and by request.

Along with our Complaint Handling Policy, it also outlines our commitment, and the commitment we require of our Partner Organisations, to establishing and promoting accessible, safe, and discreet mechanisms for stakeholders to provide feedback and raise concerns or complaints.
