20th September 2018, Suva, Fiji - Budding entrepreneurs and experienced sustainable business owners gathered in Suva for Fiji Greenpreneurs week. The event was organized jointly by the Pacific Community’s (SPC) Pacific Center for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (PCREEE) and the Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), and aimed at cultivating development of local businesses that help address environmental or social issues as a core part of their business model.

At the highest meeting of world leaders, the Kingdom of Tonga expressed its unwavering faith on renewable energy as a key to adressing the single greatest threat to small Island developing states - climate change - and for unlocking its growth and development potentials.

Faced with the challenges of climate change, a population with increasing obesity rates and the rising unemployment among youths, His Majesty Tupou VI told the 73rd Session of the UN General Assembly that it is still possible for Tonga to achieve its target of 50% renewable energy by 2020.
