South Korea

South Korea launched its P4G National Platform on 27 July 2018, solidifying its role as a leader in sustainable development. Korea has fostered a strong green growth alliance with Denmark, including as a leader in P4G’s predecessor, the Global Green Growth Forum, and is building on that progress through P4G. Noting its demonstrated success and continued commitment to sustainable development, South Korea will facilitate cooperation and knowledge sharing with P4G partner countries. South Korea will also seek for new business models and support implementation of projects. 

South Korea looks forward to engaging with partnerships focused on the plastics circular economy and sustainable buildings. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs, working with business leaders, government and sustainability professionals from across the country, will help identify and support partnerships in developing countries that offer innovative sustainability solutions. 

“To address climate change and promote green growth, we need to support partnerships between the public and private sectors and civil society. South Korea’s P4G national platform will facilitate partnerships and work to strengthen the global P4G network.”

- Yoo Yeon Chul, Ambassador for Climate Change, Ministry of Foreign Affairs
