The Danish Government’s initiative Global Green Growth Forum (3GF) continues with the founding country hosting the Global Green Growth Forum Summit 2016, seeing among others Malaysia’s Minister of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Dr. Ongkili, in attendance on 6-7 June 2016.
Minister Ongkili joins with international leaders to discuss how to accelerate the move towards inclusive green growth worldwide. It is the fifth year in a row that leaders from corporations, governments and civil society from around the world meet in Copenhagen to accelerate the transition towards sustainable green growth. The Minister is visiting Denmark with a delegation also representing the Sustainable Energy Development Agency (SEDA), the National Electricity Company (Tenaga), Green Tech Corporation and the Energy Commission.
The 3GF 2016 Summit features some of the most innovative systems thinking in the world today, outlining the pathways for delivering transformative solutions. Sharing of new ideas and evidence as well as experience from collaborative partnerships will form the essential deliberations. It is within this intellectually stimulating and very practical context, that the Summit will above all else advocate the need for green transformation – going further than ever … and vastly faster.
The aim of the 3GF Summit is to provide a forum to accompany and accelerate delivery of a sub-set of SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) through transformational public-private partnerships. The 3GF 2016 Summit will focus on the sub-set of SDGs that best align with green growth drivers, e.g. on cities, energy, forests, water, land, sustainable production and consumption, food and hunger, finance.
At the personal invitation of the Prime Minister of Denmark, the 3GF 2016 Summit will engage 250-300 top leaders from corporations (businesses, investors etc.), governments, international organisations and civil society from all over the world. This will include 3GF partnership countries; China, Ethiopia, Kenya, Korea, Mexico, Qatar and Vietnam.
3GF was initiated by the Danish Government in 2011 in collaboration with the Republic of Korea and Mexico. In 2012 China, Kenya and Qatar joined the partnership, and in 2014 Ethiopia become the 7th partner. Other partners of 3GF include: ABB, Alstom, Bidco Group & Kenya Private Sector Alliance and East African Business Council, Danfoss, Hyundai Motors, McKinsey & Company, Novozymes, Samsung, Siemens, Vestas, OECD, the International Energy Agency (IEA), UN Global Compact and International Finance Corporation (IFC), Climate Policy Initiative, Global Green Growth Institute, Inter-American Development Bank and World Resources Institute.
