In May 2021, GSEF members and partners had the opportunity to present their initiatives and projects during sessions of the 2021 P4G Seoul Summit. Their contributions served to highlight the importance of civil society’s involvement and of effective public-private partnerships for a ‘green transformation’.

The P4G (Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030) initiative is a global public-private partnership launched in 2018 and consisting of 12 countries and 5 international organizations including the World Economic Forum, the International Finance Corporation, the World Resources Institute, the Global Green Growth Institute, and C40 Cities. It aims at accelerating market-based solutions to build sustainable and resilient economies, particularly in themes of food, water, energy, cities, and the circular economy through impact investment. As of 2020, it has invested USD 292 million in more than 50 partnerships.
