For a transformation that leaves no one behindFind out More
The Foundations Platform F20 is a network of more than 80 foundations and philanthropic organisations from different parts of the world. Considering the G20 countries as key players to deliver on the global climate goals and limit global warming to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, F20 calls for joint, transnational action towards sustainable development and for futureproof pathways towards solutions of today’s most pressing challenges: The climate and biodiversity crises and a renewable-energy-based Just Transition. F20 is eager to contribute to the climate agenda by being part of the solution and building bridges between civil society, business and financial sectors, think tanks and politics – within the G20 countries, between them and beyond.
G20 countries carry an overwhelming 80% share of global emissions and represent roughly 2/3s of the world population. Obviously, as a group they hold the keys in their hand to implement the Paris Climate Agreement
Because of their significant footprint, G20 countries have the responsibility to put climate on top of the global agenda. And they need to throw their weight behind the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is within this context that F20 also addresses the G7 countries, which F20 considers as a subgroup of the G20 upholding the commitment to leave no one behind. F20 seeks to address the G20 countries also by highlighting their particular role within UN Climate summits and the UNFCCC process.
F20 is convinced that global challenges can only be tackled by a new level of international collaboration, transformative partnerships and a firm commitment.
