    “3GF offers a space for world economic leaders to challenge conventional thinking and find new green avenues to growth. Green growth has to be at the core of a sustainable strategy to get us out of the economic crisis. To advance this global agenda, Denmark as well as other countries actively engaged in the green transition must take the lead, in close partnership with visionary companies and investors. Together, we can foster the bold decisions necessary to make all of us winners of tomorrow's green industrial revolution. This is our common responsibility”.
    The Danish Prime Minister / Helle Thorning-Schmidt

    "Public-private partnership is an essential driver for green growth in that it facilitates green entrepreneurship from the business and green stewardship from the government that will in turn foster environment for R&D and green investment. I am confident that 3GF will soon develop into a key platform for such partnership bearing the fruits of technological advances and industrial opportunities for our common future."
    The President of the Republic of Korea / H.E. Lee Myung-bak

     “We are trapped in the false dilemma that we have to choose either the economic development or the environment.. It is possible to combine economic growth and sustainability. A low-carbon economy is key in implementing measures to mitigate climate change and that is the response to solve the dilemma: a low-carbon economy, the green path.”
    The President of Mexico / Felipe Calderón

    “Energy efficiency is the cheapest and fastest way to save energy and reduce CO2 emissions. Today, energy-efficient technologies are available at affordable costs so there is no reason why we should wait. There is a gap between what can be done and political will. 3GF shall contribute to overcome this gap!”
    CEO of Danfoss / Niels B. Christiansen

     “We fully support 3GFs ambition of creating a green forum for governments, international businesses, investors, interest groups and international organizations. We all have to work together to create a green economy for the future. The key is to use the technology in an intelligent way so that climate considerations can be implemented while businesses continue to deliver earnings and growth"
    CEO of Siemens A/S / Jukka Pertola

    “The Global Green Growth Forum has attracted broad attention from policy makers, the industry and institutions. As a company devoted to electric mobility, solar power, energy storage system, and LED lighting, BYD fully supports the 3GF initiative which provides a great platform to find the way to sustainable and cleaner growth”
    Chairman and CEO, BYD Group / Chuanfu Wang

    “Vestas commends the Global Green Growth Forum and believes the initiative has the potential to contribute substantially to accelerating the transition to a low-carbon green economy. We look forward to further exploring and helping to define the work plan as the initiative gains momentum.”
    President and CEO / Vestas Wind Systems A/S / Ditlev Engel

    “The Global Green Growth Forum (3GF) confirms the position of Denmark and South Korea as pioneers in facilitating and accelerating the transition to a low-carbon economy. ABB believes that greater energy efficiency is critical to sustainable growth, and we are optimistic that 3GF will be instrumental in the promotion of the energy efficiency agenda.”
    CEO, ABB Ltd / Joe Hogan

    “President Lee’s commitment to green growth is an example that many are following. The Strategy notes that business is also playing a role - using new energy efficient technologies that are good for the environment and the corporate balance sheet. Denmark’s 3GF initiative is an opportunity for all stakeholders to work together for greener future, and we welcome it.”
    OECD Secretary-General / Angel Gurriá
  • "The two great challenges of the 21st century are the battle against poverty and the race to adopt a new model of sustainable, green growth. The challenges are inextricably linked—we cannot achieve one without the other. Addressing them requires a strong partnership between the public and private sectors to develop new policies and technologies that level the playing field between the rich and the poor. IFC supports the Global Green Growth Forum because without the collective thinking of businesses, governments, and civil society, we cannot achieve the type of sustainable and inclusive growth that we need to create a more prosperous future."
  • FC Vice President, Business Advisory Services / Rachel Kyte
  • "3GF presents a great opportunity to trigger a more transformational mindset by enhancing the quality and breadth of public-private dialogue around specific challenges in the green growth agenda. Looking forward to continuing to contribute to this initiative and using the summit to further build on the momentum that has been created over the past months."
