WWF’s work would not be possible without building strong and lasting relationships with our WWF Offices in the EU and also globally, and with other supporters, donors and partners, including foundations, private sector organisations and the European Commission.
In 2016 (financial year 07/2015 - 06/2016), the public financing from European sources received at WWF European Policy Office was equivalent to 760117 euros (16.4% of whole income). 50% of WWF EPO' staff time was directly attributed to interest representation with EU institutions.
WWF also cooperates with other NGOs working on environmental and development policy in Brussels. We are part of the ‘Green 10’, an informal coalition of the ten leading environmental NGOs active at EU level, and of CONCORD, the European NGO confederation for Relief and Development.
The ‘Green 10’ work with EU institutions to ensure that environmental issues are at the heart of policy-making. Through their individual networks, the ‘Green 10’ activities reflect the views of some 20 million European citizens.
As a non-profit organisation WWF's European Policy Office (EPO) received funding in the present financial year from:
- WWF National Offices
- The Alliance for Beverage Cartons and the Environment (ACE)
- The European Climate Foundation
- The MAVA Foundation
- Oceans 5
- Paul M. Angell Family Foundation
