Our Initiatives

GDFA was launched as a not for profit foundation by the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP) and Ant Group at the World Economic Forum in 2017.

A dynamic Think-Do-Tank we take a systemic approach to enable the sustainable transition across sectors and geographies, addressing barriers and bridging innovation gaps between emerging technology for climate, biodiversity and sustainable development with new financing and business models.

GDFA collaborates with an ecosystem of international experts and philanthropic organizations, research institutions, government agencies and corporate actors.
