The GGGI is a treaty-based international organization that promotes green growth, a growth paradigm that is characterized by a balance of economic growth and environmental sustainability. GGGI provides research and stakeholder engagement for green growth plans, especially in developing countries, aiming to replace the more typical paradigm based on industrial development.

GGGI founding members are Australia, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ethiopia, Guyana, Indonesia, Kiribati, Mexico, Norway, Papua New Guinea, Paraguay, the Philippines, Qatar, the Republic of Korea, the United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom and Vietnam. Since its inauguration as an international organization, Fiji, Hungary, Jordan, Mongolia, Peru, Rwanda, Senegal, Thailand, and Vanuatu have become Member countries.

GGGI has formal working relationships with, and is supported by, a number of major international organizations, including the United Nations General Assembly, the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the Green Climate Fund, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development, several Multilateral Development Banks and UN Regional Commissions, and the Global Commission on the Economy and Climate.
