The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) is an international organization dedicated to green growth. Headquartered in Seoul, it is a new, hybrid international organization – interdisciplinary, multistakeholder and driven by the priorities of emerging and developing economies – established by an initial group of eighteen governments pursuant to a treaty signed at the United Nations Rio+20 Conference in June 2012.  

GGGI is dedicated to helping governments and industry pioneer and diffuse a new model of economic growth, green growth, that integrates ambitions for strong economic and environmental performance to achieve poverty reduction, job creation and social inclusion, as well as climate change mitigation and adaptation, addressing biodiversity loss and resource security. GGGI’s approach is particularly suited to developing countries as we believe growth is an essential ingredient in economic and human development.

GGGI’s theory of change leads it to focus on three major outcomes: (1) adoption and implementation of rigorous green growth plans based on strong analytics that form the core of national and provincial economic development strategies in emerging and developing economies; (2) research which builds a strong theoretical and empirical basis for green growth, while providing concrete options and guidance for policymakers; and (3) public-private partnerships that enable the scaling of resource-efficient investment, innovation and practice in key industry sectors as well as the engagement of companies in the implementation of national and subnational green growth plans.
