The Green Growth Platform (GGP) brings together ministers from European governments, businesses and the European Parliament to discuss and debate the economic opportunities and challenges involved in the transition to a low carbon, resilient economy. This notable and influential platform is made up of ministers from 16 governments, 18 members of the EU parliament and some 40 major businesses.
The economic challenges and opportunities of an ambitious European decarbonisation agenda are complex. With this in mind, a group of like-minded EU energy, climate and environment ministers formed an informal grouping – the ministerial Green Growth Group. The ministers agreed that business and public engagement should be a key part of their work and reached out to the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership (CISL) to form a Green Growth Platform in 2013.
CISL continues to provide the secretariat of the Green Growth Platform. The Prince of Wales’s Corporate Leaders Group, which is also convened by CISL, acts as a strategic advisory body to the GGP.
