A new alliance between nations aimed at pushing forward and bolstering the role of enterprises in achieving sustainable development goals

“P4G is a new global alliance of countries which seek to step forward and to strengthen the role of enterprises in achieving the sustainable development goals. We will develop more partnerships between governments, cities, enterprises, investors and the civil society," according to a statement released by the Danish government. The plan will be presented to the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) in New York, and aims to develop specific solutions for implementing the Paris climate agreement. As explained in the document, the initiative should ensure the close partnership between regions, cities and companies in eliminating the obstacles in the way of environmentally friendly economic growth in the fields of agriculture, the food industry, the energy sector and urban development. The P4G headquarters will be located in Washington, and the first summit of the organization is expected to take place on November 28 and 29, 2018. According to the statement, Chile, China, Columbia, Ethiopia, Indonesia, Kenya, Mexico, South Korea, and Vietnam have already endorsed the proposal.
