The Nature Steward Alliance is an industry-focused collaborative effort with goals to: advance nature and biodiversity awareness and education; empower conservation actions; and promote long-term company sustainability practices. 

WHC Climate Action Works

The WHC Climate Action Works initiative, launched in October 2019 with funding from ArcelorMittal, helps corporate landowners utilize nature-based climate change solutions that are corporate-driven, community-minded, and biodiversity-based. Climate Action Works seeks to create a framework in which corporate leaders can view their lands as contributing to their science-based climate targets and take action in accordance with these targets.
