Please describe what your organisation does…
WWF is the world’s leading independent conservation organisation. Our mission is to create a world where people and wildlife can thrive together.
We work with companies in a number of ways, including large strategic partnerships to develop sustainable business practices and helping to engage employees and consumers in raising funds for conservation. We also work with businesses to call for greener government policies and in multi-stakeholder networks to develop solutions to the big environmental challenges facing industry sectors.
At the forefront of sustainable design and construction, our beautiful building in the heart of Woking is one of the greenest meeting and event venues in the UK. Offering a range of space for your event including a spacious auditorium, bright boardroom and various sized meeting rooms, plus fantastic networking space, it really is a unique space for any event.
What makes your organisation special?
Our multi award-winning home, the Living Planet Centre, is not only the home of WWF-UK but also a beautiful events venue and visitor centre. From family activities and school workshops, to behind-the-scenes tours and inspiring public talks we have a wonderful range of activities to inspire and inform.
How long have you been in Woking?
We moved to the Living Planet Centre in November 2013, and opened to the public in January 2014.
Why is Woking a good place to do business?
The location of Woking is great for doing business, with great transport links, especially rail, into London and across the South East. Making connections across Woking is also easy with lots of networking groups and opportunities to meet new contacts.
