WWF´s national and international projects contribute to achieving this goal. They are intended to prove that the conservation and responsible use of natural resources is compatible with sustainable economic development.

Panda Search works with the same model as Google. Each click on a sponsored link generates a small revenue, which varies depending on the search term.
The revenue is distributed according to a fixed key. 50 percent is distributed via PANDA Fördergesellschaft mbH to WWF Germany, which, depending on the regional composition of users, passes on funds to other WWF chapters, such as WWF Switzerland and WWF Austria. The remaining 50 percent is earmarked for the operation of the search engine as well as for campaigns and online marketing activities.
Panda is based on Microsoft’s Bing search algorithm. The auto-complete feature is provided by Searchturbo Ltd.
Searching with Panda is CO2 neutral. Three factors are decisive: Panda Search is hosted CO2-free. The search queries are processed by BING. The company introduced an internal CO2 tax in 2012 and has been CO2-neutral since then. WWF’s work, which is supported by Panda Search, has an additional CO2 positive effect.
Panda is a privacy friendly search engine that helps you reduce your digital footprint. This includes: (1) We do not create personal user profiles of you. Many web services collect user information in order to resell it without their explicit permission. We do not sell your information and search queries to advertisers. (2) We encrypt your searches to protect your searches from potential interceptors. (3) We do not use externally hosted tracking tools. Most websites use external tracking tools such as Google Analytics to improve their service.
