Republic of Chile

Background and priorities

Chile joined P4G as a country partner in 2018. 

Chile has developed and advanced its green growth priorities over the past decade and positioned itself as an international leader in climate change mitigation, particularly through its role holding the presidency of the UNFCCC COP25. Chile was one of the first countries to submit a revised, more ambitious Nationally Determined Contribution following COP, former President Sebastian Pinera committed to closing all coal-fired plants by 2030. Chile has declared its intention to become carbon neutral by 2050. 

The Government of Chile released a national strategy for green hydrogen that aims to produce the world’s cheapest green hydrogen by 2030, to be among the three leading exporters by 2040 and to have 5 GW of electrolysis capacity under development by 2025. In pursuing its goal for more energy efficiency, Chile has also established a framework for waste management and recycling promotion through its Extended Producer Responsibilities Law, which can serve as a model for countries aiming to better manage waste and recycling.  

Chile is especially committed to P4G projects around sustainable transportation, clean and efficient energy use and the circular economy, and has supported three partnerships since joining P4G in 2018. These partnerships include: Refill Revolution, a partnership scaling household product refills in stores to transform consumption and reduce waste; Zero Emission Bus Rapid Deployment Accelerator (ZEBRA), which aims to deploy electric buses and pioneer the adoption of electric vehicles in transportation systems; and Getting to Zero Coalition, a multi-stakeholder, multi-country effort to accelerate the shift to zero emissions shipping. 

Population 19.2 million

With its pipeline of innovative partnerships, global platform and engaged network, P4G can help accelerate Chile’s ambitions to be a leader in the green hydrogen industry and to be net zero emissions by 2050.
