The OECD Green Growth Strategy, launched in May 2011, provides concrete recommendations and measurement tools to support countries’ efforts to achieve economic growth and development, while at the same time ensure that natural assets continue to provide the ecosystems services on which our well-being relies. The strategy proposes a flexible policy framework that can be tailored to different country circumstances and stages of development. OECD Green Growth Papers complement the OECD Green Growth Studies series, and aim to stimulate discussion and analysis on specific topics and obtain feedback from interested audiences.

In this paper we explore why and how the private sector is working in partnerships with the public sector on building green global value chains. The findings and insights are based on the experiences of the companies associated in the Dutch Sustainable Growth Coalition and five years of intensive work of driving green growth in supply chains through IDH The Sustainable Trade Initiative. The Sustainable Trade Initiative was set up with support of the Dutch and Danish governments to build coalitions of companies, governments and NGOs that would transform markets towards sustainability at scale. This paper provides key lessons how to drive such change effectively.
