WWF Nedbank Green Trust celebrates 30th anniversary

The WWF Nedbank Green Trust’s slogan – “Igniting new ways for people and nature to thrive” – has never been more relevant or imperative than it is in 2020.

It is the year of the Trust’s 30th anniversary celebrations and the dawn of what many are hoping is humanity’s opportunity to reimagine how we live, how we use and consume, and the potential for our common futures.
 
Founded in 1990, WWF Nedbank Green Trust funds innovative projects that have the potential to contribute to solving some of South Africa’s greatest societal and environmental challenges. From the beginning, the WWF Nedbank Green Trust achieved its greatest influence through partnerships.
 
We work with partners and communities who champion the custodianship of our natural resources and direct their energy and efforts to key levers of change for South Africa's future. Our prosperity depends on the coming together of governments, businesses, organisations and all people, and so, for the past 30 years, the Green Trust has worked to create and cement these interconnected relationships,” says Augustine Morkel, Executive Manager of Operations at WWF-SA.
 
This 30-year partnership has raised more than R300 million for the funding of over 200 major conservation projects.
 
You can help the WWF Nedbank Green Trust by supporting the Nedbank Green Affinity Programme. The Nedbank Green Affinity Programme is aimed at supporting nature conservation projects through community-based programmes and is key in looking after natural resources such as our oceans, wildlife, fresh water, climate and more.

Through the WWF Nedbank Green Trust, more than R300 million rand has been invested in over 200 conservation projects.
