P4G – a green growth engine for the SDGs

P4G is an action oriented global green growth engine that powers breakthrough partnerships with government, business and community leaders to speed up the UN Sustainable Development Goals and fulfil the commitments of the Paris Agreement of 2015. P4G will accelerate impact through innovative, cross-sector, public-private partnerships among leaders across national borders to inspire, share knowledge and implement solutions at scale.

What is P4G

P4G – Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 – is an initiative that creates a space with breakthrough partnerships for businesses, national and city leaders, financiers, and community advocates to join forces in the development and deployment of powerful cross-sector ideas that accelerate progress.

Focus areas

P4G will focus on the following areas to maximize green growth: Energy, water, land-use, food, sustainable cities, and a circular economy.

Who is behind P4G

Frontrunner countries including Chile, Denmark, Ethiopia, Kenya, Korea, Mexico and Vietnam, have taken the lead to gather an alliance of nations, private companies and international organisations with a shared commitment to deliver on green growth and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through an inclusive approach, the alliance will engage actively across borders and sectors to create a global economy that works for all of us.

How P4G Works

P4G is built on three core elements:

  • Breakthrough Partnerships: The P4G will facilitate, nurture and propel innovative, cross-sector breakthrough public-private partnerships for impact. The partnerships will be identified, fostered and tracked. They will be showcased at high-level biennial summits and by ongoing communications. They will thrive through engagement with sub-national, national and international leaders.
  • Inspiring Summits: Regular biennial meetings hosted by partner countries will raise the profile of green growth in targeted areas and of transformative partnerships, offering inspiration to others to accelerate and scale transformative green growth.
  • Rigorous Evidence and Accountability: The P4G will build the knowledge and evidence base needed to advance the green economic transition. A regular publication of a “State of Art of Green Growth” report coinciding with the P4G Summits will highlight and showcase successful P4G partnerships. It will document new solutions with potential, and at the same time provide the economic evidence base that triggers new cross-sector collaboration.
