3GF breathes easy

Copenhagen holds the Global Green Growth Forum, an event to translate the ambitions of the Paris Climate Agreement and UN's Sustainable Development Goals through public-private partnerships.

The Global Green Growth Forum (3GF) has been held in Copenhagen with representatives from governments and the private sector in 35 countries attending.

The summit focused on innovative collaborations and green solutions to challenges faced across the world in energy, food loss and waste, the climate and sustainable cities.

It was timed to follow on from the Paris Climate Agreement and the Agreement on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

Founded in 2011, 3GF is a collaboration launched by Denmark, South Korea and Mexico. Since its inception, China, Kenya, Qatar, Ethiopia, Vietnam and Chile have also joined the initiative as official partners.

The event was expected to create more than 30 public–private partnerships regarding green growth.

Kristian Jensen, Danish minister of foreign affairs, said: “In 2015, the international community agreed upon a number of ambitious goals for climate and sustainable development in Paris and New York. The 3GF Summit is a means to translate the ambitions to concrete agreements.

“We need to form new innovative collaborations to promote green growth both locally and globally. I will focus specifically on the role of cities and on strengthening the collaboration with the private sector.”
