GNF - Possibilities of Cooperation

Examples of Cooperation with Companies


From the beginning of its activity in 1998, the Global Nature Fund has formed alliances with partners who want to support the GNF´s specific project work on site. The funding partners help directly the projects of the GNF and its partners pursuing the careful use of natural resources, environmental protection and conservation as well as the developing of alternative income sources in developing countries. And it are not only companies or foundations that support the project work within the network Living Lakes. Further collaborations can be found here.
