The Lion’s Share Fund is an initiative led by advertising companies and major brands. Its premise is simple yet innovative: when an animal image is currently used for promoting goods and services no remuneration is paid by the advertisers to compensate the animal, its habitats and nature - unlike when people appear in advertising. The Lion’s Share initiative seek to change this by creating a voluntary mechanism for participating advertisers to give 0.5% of their relevant media buy for the use of animals in their marketing. In return for contributing a portion of their advertising budget to the fund, brands will be able to use a Lion’s Share certificate/logo on their products, signaling to consumers the positive conservation impact.
The Lion’s Share is a multi-partner platform bringing together private sector companies, global and local non-profit organisations, the United Nations (UN), specialists and concerned individuals working to make a difference for biodiversity. The founding partners are Finch, Mars Incorporated, and the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).
The objective of the Lion’s Share Fund is to “harness private sector leadership and consumer support to secure healthy wildlife populations and habitats, instill compassion and care for animals as the foundation of human well-being and ensure increased appreciation for nature and its contributions to equitable and sustainable development pathways”.
The Lion’s Share Fund was announced in June 2018 at the Cannes Lions International Festival of Creativity. The Lion’s Share Fund will be officially launched at the 73rd UN General Assembly. Since launch, outreach progress has been made with brands such as Gucci, Cartier and Lacoste having joined the Fund.
