As the world’s population grows and the threats from climate change become more pronounced, the need for sustainable development intensifies. No one country, company or community has all the answers. That’s why we need to foster partnerships among businesses, governments and civil society. This is where P4G comes in. P4G accelerates, funds and recognizes innovative public-private partnerships driving green growth. We focus on breakthrough solutions in five Sustainable Development Growth (SDG) sectors: food and agriculture (SDG2), clean water (SDG6), clean energy (SDG7), sustainable cities (SDG11) and circular economy (SDG12).
Now is the time for action. P4G, with initial funding by the government of Denmark, is a network of leaders from government, business and civil society working to accelerate green growth in many of the 150 developing countries across the world. Already we are working in partnership with leaders in 12 countries: Bangladesh, Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, The Netherlands, South Africa, The Republic of Korea and Vietnam. Our partner countries see public-private partnerships as key to meeting their Sustainable Development Goals. We also benefit from the active support of partner organizations. These include: C40, IFC, Global Green Growth Institute, UN Global Compact, World Economic Forum, and World Resources Institute, which also hosts P4G’s Global Hub in Washington, DC.
P4G is about pioneering green partnerships and investing in impact. We have built a unique ecosystem that connects the concrete on the ground work of its partnerships with the top-down influence of its partner network to catalyze transformative change and deliver tangible impact. This multi-layer approach unites country partner priorities, civil society missions, businesses and partnerships to deliver a shared vision of a better future for all.
The P4G State-of-the-Art Partnership Awards are presented annually to public-private partnerships that have achieved measurable success based on innovation, impact and scalability. We salute businesses, civil society organizations and governments working together for a more sustainable world.
