About the organisation:
P4G – Partnering for Green Growth and the Global Goals 2030 – is a new initiative, commenced in 2018, with the ambition of becoming the world’s leading forum for developing concrete public-private partnerships at scale to deliver on the SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement. They bring together business, government, and civil society organizations in innovative public-private partnerships to advance solutions that help meet humanity’s greatest needs in five key areas: food and agriculture, water, energy, cities and circular economy.
P4G offers financial support and targeted assistance to select public-private partnerships that are advancing innovative strategies to achieve the following five Sustainable Development Goals:
- SDG 2 Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture
- SDG 6 Water and Sanitation
- SDG 7 Clean Energy
- SDG 11 Sustainable Cities
- SDG 12 Sustainable Consumption and Production (circular economy)
P4G will provide funding only to partnerships in the start-up and scale-up phases of development and growth.
- Start-up: Promising, early-stage partnerships that need support to consolidate the partnership or test the feasibility of innovative approaches.
- Scale-up: Partnerships that are already engaged in promising, business-driven green growth innovations and need support to scale up and accelerate their impact.
Partnerships in the start-up phase may apply for up to USD 100,000. P4G funding should represent a maximum of 75 percent of the partnership’s budget. Partnerships in the scale-up phase may apply for up to USD 1 million, with P4G funding a maximum of 50 percent of the partnership’s budget. P4G funding is for a period of one to two years, depending on the needs of the partnership. P4G also supports partnerships with facilitation and recognition. This may include convening investors, businesses, and governments around new business models, connecting the partnership to government stakeholders to advocate for policies that enable favorable market conditions, matching known solutions to new market opportunities, and highlighting the partnership at global events. See the P4G website for examples of how P4G supports partnerships.
- Primary SDG Focus: Partnership activities must focus on one or more of P4G’s five target SDGs: SDG 2 Food Security and Sustainable Agriculture, SDG 6 Water and Sanitation, SDG 7 Clean Energy, SDG 11 Sustainable Cities, and SDG 12 Sustainable Consumption and Production (circular economy). See complete list of SDGs at https://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/ .
- Country Focus: Partnership activities must benefit one or more of the 150 developing countries eligible for P4G funding. See list of eligible countries at http://www.oecd.org/dac/financing-sustainable-development/development-financestandards/daclist.htm.
- Partners: The partnership must include at least one commercial partner (a business or group of businesses committed to responsible business conduct by integrating human rights, labor rights, environmental concerns, and anti-corruption concerns into their operations and core strategies) and at least one non-commercial partner (non-governmental organizations, civil society, business member organizations, trade unions, or others that operate on a non-profit basis).
- Market Potential: The partnership must be designed to overcome financial, institutional, operational, or other critical barriers to meeting the SDGs with an innovative, scalable, and commercially viable solution.
- Additionality: The partnership must propose work that is “additional” to what is already happening or what would naturally happen in the marketplace. For example, P4G funding should be “additional” to traditional commercial business development (i.e. expansion of a core business offering), as well as “additional” to traditional international development (i.e. programming that bilateral and multilateral funders typically cover), and therefore should not be used for either type of activity nor should the partnership be primarily focused on either type of activity.
- Start-up or Scale-up: Partnerships must be in either the start-up or the scale-up phase of development. P4G only supports projects in the start-up and scale-up phase within the context of four basic phases of partnership/project development: concept, research and development, and pilot phase; start-up phase; implementation phase; and scale-up or replication phase.
