Hawai’i Green Growth

Hawai‘i Green Growth (HGG) is a United Nations Local2030 hub that brings together diverse stakeholders committed to economic, social and environmental priorities. The HGG seeks to build a connection between the valuable generations of indigenous knowledge with modern science, technology, and policy through systems thinking to support solutions that are globally applicable.
As a Local2030 sustainability hub, Hawai‘i Green Growth public-private partners are collaborating to advance:
  • Hawai‘i’s statewide Aloha+ Challenge sustainability and climate goals
  • Open-data impact Dashboard with agreed indicators
  • Joint policy priorities, innovative financing, and resilient infrastructure solutions
  • Educational pathways for the next generation of leaders
  • Scalable island models to achieve the UN SDGs and Paris Agreement

In the 2011 Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) Summit in Honolulu HGG was created to identify green growth priorities and advance a green economy within an island context. In November 2018, HGG was invited by the UN 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).
