The Case for Public-Private Partnerships

Partnerships are key to achieving the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Aligning business operations with the SDGs can position businesses ahead of market trends and provide businesses with purpose. In partnership with businesses, governments can attract intellectual capital and financial investment to accelerate the deployment of new technologies and policies that can also implement goals around sustainable development and climate change action. These policies, in return, can enable businesses, communities and civil society groups to be bolder and more innovative in their approaches to green growth.

Imperatives and Innovations for Five SDG Sectors

P4G’s five focus areas – food and agriculture, clean water, renewable energy, healthy cities and the circular economy – present opportunities for significant evolution and growth. The report outlines key facts and market outlooks that illustrate just how critical and timely this moment is for innovative climate action to drive a new growth paradigm.
