P4G brings together businesses, governments and civil society organisations in innovative public-private partnerships to advance solutions for sustainable development and climate action. After the launch in Copenhagen in 2018, the P4G Summit arrives in Seoul this May. Find the Danish side events and activities here.

With the ambition to create the world’s leading forum for developing concrete public-private partnerships to deliver on the SDGs and the Paris Climate Agreement, Denmark kick-started P4G in Copenhagen in 2018. Setting the precedent for a global moment, the summit brought together Heads of State, CEOs, leaders in sustainable development and more than 800 attendees. Now, Seoul will unite leading decision makers to mobilize investments for transformative partnerships delivering tangible SDG and climate action impact. Leading up the main event on 30-31 May, a week of engaging talks and discussions is set to spur action and new partnerships. Denmark invites you to join the dialogue.

Danish side events at the P4G Summit 2021:

25 May: How can the Green Restart and the Korean New Deal help economies recover while accelerating the journey towards net-zero emission?

The event is organised by Danfoss.

25 May: In less than ten years from now, more than 8 billion people will demand safe, healthy and nutritious food. As food production accounts for 24 per cent of the world’s CO2 emissions, feeding the growing population is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.  Join “Steering the green transformation in farming and food – Innovative technology as a key driver” here.
