In September, the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI) will organise its Global Green Growth Week on Jeju Island, in South Korea, with the theme 'Maximizing Impact for Inclusive and Sustainable Green Growth'.
The GGGI was founded in 2012 with the aim of accelerating the transition of its member countries towards a new model of economic growth - green growth, which is compatible with principles of social inclusivity and environmental sustainability.
This year's Global Green Growth Week will combine several summits and conferences into one mammoth event. It will bring together more than 300 heads of private and public financial institutions, heads of governments, and project developers for the Global Green Growth Summit. Over 300 experts from 40 leading policy research institutions will convene for the annual conference of the Green Growth Knowledge Platform (GGKP), and the International Emissions Trading Association will hold an Asian Carbon Market Trade Fair & Conference. Over 100 ministers, CEOs and thought leaders from Asia’s leading economies will join the Asia Regional Policy Dialogue on the coal-renewables dilemma. Other organisations participating and organising meetings include the Club de Madrid, the World Bank Partnership for Market Readiness and the Inclusive Green Growth Partnership.
