GPF seeks to utilize the rigor and expertise of private enterprise, policy leadership of the public sector and the delivery mechanisms of civil society to bring about sustainable change. Working closely with the United Nations System and other global institutions, the GPF develops high impact partnerships to invest in people around the world. GPF also provides its members with a unique platform to facilitate ongoing collaboration, as well as multiple opportunities to engage and interact at global and regional events.
Building on the leadership and vision of UN Secretary-General BAN Ki-moon, who is deeply committed to innovative partnerships, the GPF provides expertise in key areas that include:
Facilitating high impact partnerships with potential partners. GPF hosts high-level discussions with leaders from civil society, government and the private sector. Members gain valuable access to a broad range of topics including trade facilitation, policy implementation, increasing FDI and strategic support;
Developing new forms of public-‐private alliances, corporate partnerships and philanthropic structures. GPF undertakes review and assessment of existing mechanisms. It assists with integrating diverse functional areas of expertise and guides entities seeking to transition from traditional CSR to more strategic, investment-‐based approaches. This paradigm aims to produce enduring collaborative relationships, to mitigate externalities and ultimately foster sustainable change through more effective partnerships.
