What does a friendly organization for the World Wild Fund mean?

A friendly organization for the World Wild Fund is a company that took all obligations in annual support of the Fund in the form of donations. The World Wild Fund works on preserving the variety of the environment and reducing the negative environmental footprint, in particular, by protecting the Baltic Sea and various animals from tigers to ringed seals.  Only if activities of a company do not contradict with the objectives of the World Wild Fund, it is accepted as a friendly organization.
