Founded in May 2010, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is a globally represented, non-profit institute dedicated to the promotion of economic growth and development while reducing carbon emissions, increasing sustainability, and strengthening climate resilience (i.e. green growth). GGGI is founded on the belief that economic growth and environmental sustainability are not merely compatible objectives, but are mutually necessary for the future of humankind.
GGGI currently supports several projects in partner countries through program development, implementation, capacity building, best practice sharing, and the provision of grants to local institutions. Through its work, GGGI seeks to position the green growth model as one which is both practical and effective in the pursuit of economic growth and sustainable development.
GGGI is headquartered in Seoul, Republic of Korea
VISION & MISSION
The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) was founded on the belief that economic growth and environmental sustainability are not merely compatible objectives, but are mutually necessary for the future of humankind.
It is dedicated to supporting the creation and diffusion of a new model of economic growth, known as "green growth", that integrates objectives for poverty reduction, opportunity creation, and social development, with objectives for environmental sustainability and climate and energy security.
GGGI supports emerging and developing nations in their efforts to create and implement national and local strategies and policies for pursuing green growth. In so doing, GGGI seeks to contribute to increasing the effectiveness and impact of national and local action on green growth, promoting best practice, building capacity, and encouraging international cooperation. Through its work, GGGI will help advance both the theory and practice of green growth.
As a politically neutral source of independent expertise, GGGI will provide a comprehensive set of capabilities, skills and services aimed at answering key questions related to green growth planning, and play a critical role in the post-Copenhagen landscape.
