Global Green Growth Institute

GGGI

Seoul, South Korea

The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) was founded on the belief that economic growth and environmental sustainability are not merely compatible objectives; their integration is essential for the future of humankind. GGGI is dedicated to pioneering and diffusing a new model of economic growth, known as "green growth," that simultaneously targets key aspects of economic performance, such as poverty reduction, job creation and social inclusion, and those of environmental sustainability, such as mitigation of climate change and biodiversity loss and security of access to clean energy and water. As its diverse Board of Directors reflects, GGGI is a new kind of international organization, interdisciplinary, multi-stakeholder and driven by emerging and developing countries. It has been established by several forward-thinking governments to maximize the opportunity for "bottom up" (i.e., country- and business-led) progress on climate change and other environmental challenges within core economic policy and business strategies. Through its country, industry and research activities, it seeks to serve as a bridge between developed and developing countries, the public and private sectors, and practitioners and scholars, respectively.
