P4G Partnerships include both private and public-sector organizations who are working together to advance innovative and commercially viable project(s) in at least one of these five SDG sectors: food and agriculture, water, energy, cities, and circular economy. The partners can come from any country, but their work must target green growth in one of these 150 countries. We provide P4G Partnerships with facilitation, funding, and recognition to support their growth. Our goal is to help these partnerships demonstrate market success and replicability.
Five Characteristics of a P4G Partnership
(1) Relevance: Promotes market-based solutions to one or more of our five SDG sector areas
(2) Impact: meaningfully contributes to systems change that will advance overall green economic growth with commercially viable and replicable business models
(3) Innovation and growth: addresses barriers that must be overcome in order to accelerate commercially viable means of accomplishing the SDGs
(4) Value Add: Innovative constellations of private sector, public sector, and organizations tackling global challenges through market-driven approaches
(5) Implementation: the capacity to succeed.

P4G Partnership Facilitation
P4G provides an array of facilitation supports to its partnerships. Our facilitation support can help partnerships pitch their projects to investors, learn about industry best practices and network with business and government leaders. We provide P4G Partnerships with valuable visibility at global events such as the P4G Copenhagen Summit, the Clean Energy Investment Forum, the World Food Summit and World Economic Forum's Sustainable Development Impact Summit. In 2018, P4G selected 5 partnerships for direct facilitation support.
