Since inception, the Nedbank Green Affinity programme has helped raise more than R100 million for the funding of more than 170 major conservation projects funded by the WWF Nedbank Green Trust.
The WWF Nedbank Green Trust has a strong community-based conservation focus, ensuring that natural resources are sustained for the benefit of people. It is involved in the conservation of species and ecosystem diversity, climate change programmes, ensuring that the use of renewable natural resources is sustainable, and the promotion of actions aimed at reducing to a minimum pollution and the wasteful exploitation and consumption of resources and energy.
The Trust is constituted with both a Board of Trustees as well as a Management Committee. The Trustees carry the fiduciary responsibility for the Trust but they have delegated most of their other duties to the Management Committee. Management and administration of the Trust is undertaken by WWF South Africa under the supervision of the Management Committee. The Management Committee also acts as a project approval mechanism.
