The United Nations Global Compact has joined P4G, the Partnering Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 initiative, as an organizational partner to mobilize impactful public-private partnerships in support of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

P4G is a new global platform for accelerating public-private partnerships that address five Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs): zero hunger, clean water and sanitation, affordable clean energy, sustainable cities and communities, and responsible production and consumption.

“We are pleased to partner with P4G to advance our shared interests in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals by 2030, especially through the innovative partnership approach pioneered by P4G,” said Lise Kingo, CEO & Executive Director of the UN Global Compact, who will be joining the P4G Board of Directors. “We look forward to collaborating with P4G to advance partnerships and leverage our Local Networks to help foster a more sustainable world.”

As part of the new collaboration, the UN Global Compact and P4G will work together to advance the SDGs in areas, such as electric mobility and inclusive economic development in emerging markets at the local level. The work will build on the vast network of companies participating in the UN Global Compact and its Local Networks around the world.

“UN Global Compact significantly expands P4G’s ability to reach businesses worldwide that are committed to the Sustainable Development Goals,” said P4G’s Global Director, Ian de Cruz. “P4G organizational partners are an essential part of bringing together business, Government and civil society to facilitate our partnerships throughout the world.”

P4G’s other organizational partners include C40 Cities, Global Green Growth Institute,  IFC, World Economic Forum and World Resources Institute. P4G is a collaborative partnership among nine partner countries, including Chile, Colombia, Denmark, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mexico, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea and Vietnam.
