GLOBE 2014


GLOBE™ is about taking responsibility. Forging new partnerships. Thinking outside the box. It’s where leaders come to devise winning strategies to conserve precious resources, save money, and meet people that can help them be more profitable, more efficient, and protect the planet while doing so. It has helped corporations understand and embed sustainability into their operations, influenced the international debate on climate change, and developed the global marketplace for environmental and energy technologies and services. GLOBE continues to draw the ‘best and brightest’ of the international sustainable business community, making it an unsurpassed strategic networking opportunity.

For the last 24 years, GLOBE has been at the forefront of new ideas and insights on business and sustainability. Every two years, thousands of environmental business leaders, corporate environmental managers, and sustainability practitioners come together in Vancouver, Canada, to explore the mutually inclusive goals of corporate sustainability, business growth, energy and climate change solutions and urban development.

Meet senior business executives and government officials. Exchange ideas, build partnerships, and conduct business on a wide range of global environmental issues. In a world filled with risk and uncertainty, GLOBE 2014 will provide provocative insights on the world’s most pressing issues around business and the environment. You cannot afford to miss this opportunity to find out how to position your organization best in order to survive and thrive, both now and over the coming decade.
