For the fifth time, top leaders from the private sector, governments, and civil society from more than 35 countries meet at the Global Green Growth Forum – 3GF Summit in Denmark. The goal is to create innovative collaborations and tangible green solutions to some of the world’s greatest challenges across energy, food loss and waste, climate, and sustainable cities. At this year’s summit, more than 30 public-private partnerships will be developing solutions that contribute to green growth all over the world.

Background

The timing of this year’s 3GF Summit is designed to follow up on the Paris Climate Agreement and the Agreement on UN’s Sustainable Development Goals from September 2015. Under the headline A Call to Action – Enabling Solutions at Speed and Scale, the 3GF provides a platform for developing solutions and private-public partnerships that help fuel the green transition. The summit focuses on three areas in particular: the green transition of energy systems, cities as drivers of green growth, and optimising the use of natural resources.

The summit will include launches of several new initiatives originated in 3GF’s public-private partnerships, e.g. a new initiative to combat climate change and an alliance working to reduce barriers to trade in green energy.

3GF was initiated by the Danish government in 2011 in close collaboration several country partners in the APAC region including Korea, China and Vietnam . For details of non APAC Partner countries and more information about this year’s sessions, participants, and the 3GF partnerships can be found on www.3gf.dk
