TRANSFORM nominated for State-of-the-Art Partnership of the Year

Since its foundation in 2015, TRANSFORM has strived to combine public sector resources with private-sector capabilities to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This commitment to partnerships has now been recognised, as TRANSFORM is named the winner of the P4G State-of-the-Art Partnership Award for SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy.

Having won the Excellence Award in this category, TRANSFORM is now a finalist of the P4G State-of-the-Art Partnership of the Year Award. The winner will be announced at the prominent ceremony, which celebrates the world’s most innovative partnerships for sustainable development, in New York on the 23rd of September

Celebrating partnerships for purpose

Organised by P4G, a network of global leaders and innovators seeking breakthrough solutions for green economic growth, the State-of-the-Art Partnership Awards are presented every year to public-private partnerships that have achieved measurable success based on innovation, impact and scalability.

Recognising those that have excelled in their approach to one or more of five key SDGs, a panel of expert judges presented TRANSFORM with the award of excellence for its efforts in SDG 7, which ensures access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.

The five finalists of each key focal area will now contend for P4G State-of-the-Art Partnership of the Year Award. A panel of judges will evaluate presentations from each nominee to make their choice. The ceremony, organised on the sidelines of the UN Climate Action Summit, will take place on the 23rd of September in New York City.

Bridging the gap

As a multi-stakeholder partnership, TRANSFORM brings together the public and private sectors to develop innovative and sustainable business models. We bridge the gap between grassroots and top-down approaches by combining early-stage social innovation with the resources they need for scale.

With TRANSFORM’s support, projects such as d.light and the Myanmar Stoves Campaign have successfully brought clean and affordable energy to thousands of low-income households. Take a look at our Portfolio to read more about the projects that are aligned with our five Thematic Pillars.
