About GGGI

The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is a treaty-based international, inter-governmental organization established in 2012, at the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.

Founded to support and promote the mainstreaming of green growth, GGGI programs and projects target economic growth that is environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive. GGGI works across four priority areas considered to be essential to transforming national economies, including energy, water, landscapes and green cities.

GGGI envisions a resilient world achieved through strong, inclusive and sustainable green growth, and is dedicated to supporting the transition of GGGI Member countries toward a green growth model. In pursuit of these goals, GGGI works with Least Developed Countries, developing and emerging economies to design and deliver programs and services that demonstrate new pathways to pro-poor, sustainable economic growth.

GGGI supports stakeholders through the delivery of comprehensive products and services designed to assist in developing, financing and mainstreaming green growth into national economic development plans.

Headquartered in Seoul, Republic of Korea, GGGI also has representation in a number of partner countries.
