What is a P4G Partnership?

P4G Partnerships are collaborative ideas changing the future of the green economy.
P4G Partnerships

P4G Partnerships include civil society, 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 (SDG2), clean water (SDG 6), clean energy (SDG7), sustainable cities (SDG11) and circular economy (SDG12). The partners can come from any country, but their work must target green growth in developing countries, with an emphasis on qualifying P4G partner countries. P4G accelerates, funds and recognizes partnerships to help grow and achieve systems change impact. P4G currently funds more than 30 partnerships.

p4g way

The P4G Way is our innovative partnership model that attracts private sector engagement and investment as co-partners with public and civil society sectors to work on start-up and scale-up projects for climate action and the SDGs. This model revolves around innovation with purpose, hyper-collaboration based on trust and acceleration. When organizations and countries agree on purpose, they can move past the short-term self-interest to more lasting progress. When partners establish mutual trust, respect and value, they can collaborate at speed and scale. P4G acceleration takes place by mobilizing networks and other support to allow the partnerships to secure commercial commitments and achieve measurable impact. When implemented across sectors and geographies, the P4G Way can have a global ripple effect to achieve progress on the SDGs and inspire greater green growth progress.
