About the Alliance

The Shift and WWF decided to join forces and form a national initiative that invites the private sector and academic institutions to take the lead on climate action.

The Alliance is counting on members that have already set science-based targets to reach out to their business partners and encourage them to make sustainability a priority.

We will host panel debates, workshops and webinars to show members how to build a business case for the adoption of science-based targets, define specific targets and develop a roadmap for their implementation.

Along the way, we will share knowledge about the steps you can take to reduce your environmental footprint, such as adopting a new business model, transforming your culture and ecosystem, and implementing new technologies across your operations.



  • Understand the rationale for your organisation to develop its own sustainable roadmap
  • Testimonials, webinars, tutorials, supporting material on the website
  • Industry-specific workshops, ideation sessions on sustainability, introductions to new tools and technologies, peer testimonials


  • Learn how to build a business case for sustainability and implement your plans
  • Partner with major industry players and innovative start-ups to reach your climate goals
  • Build on our neutral platform to catalyse climate action in your supply chain
  • Connect with similar international initiatives


  • The list of members will be highlighted on the Alliance’s website​
  • Social media campaign & press coverage ​
  • Support from WWF and The Shift​, in dialogue with the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi)
