For decades, WWF has been a leader in developing transformational partnerships with leading organizations both from the public and the private sectors.

WWF’s No Plastic in Nature initiative was founded in 2018 and its goal is to stop leakage of plastic by 2030. The initiative is organized by 3 Pillars: Policy, Markets and Cities, and Global Plastics Campaign providing cross-cutting support to all three workstreams.

Cities Pillar - With institutional funding and charitable giving, WWF Thailand is working on Cities projects in plastic hotspots in South East Asia with a key focus on city policy, collection and waste management. To date, the pillar has raised close to $30M USD to work on projects in Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Philippines and Hong Kong.

Policy Pillar - The global plastic policy work is one of the three key pillars of the global WWF “No plastics in nature” initiative developed by the Oceans and Markets Practices, collaborating closely with the WWF International Campaigns Team. The global plastics policy pillar will develop and advocate for policy solutions at the global level that can deliver the WWF vision of no plastic leakage into nature by 2030.  The main long term goal is to establish a new legally binding treaty to eliminate plastic discharge into the oceans, securing commitments by at least 50 countries to sign the agreement by 2021 that is ratified and enters into force by 2025.
