Hawai‘i Green Growth (HGG) is a United Nations Local2030 hub that brings together diverse stakeholders committed to economic, social and environmental priorities. Our work seeks to connect generations of indigenous knowledge and systems-thinking with modern science, technology, and policy to support scalable solutions that can be applied globally.
As a Local2030 sustainability hub, Hawai‘i Green Growth public-private partners are collaborating to advance:
HGG formed in response to the 2011 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Honolulu to identify green growth priorities and advance a green economy within an island context. In November 2018, the UN invited HGG to become one of the world’s first Local2030 sustainability hubs – and the first Island and Pacific hub. This recognizes the collective achievements of the HGG public-private partnership through the Aloha+ Challenge, a local framework to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
