There has never been a more important time to build resilience. To make decisions that will help us survive short-term challenges and thrive in the long term. To act in ways that will secure a more sustainable, prosperous and socially just future in Canada and around the globe.

Our GLOBE Virtual event series accelerates the transition to a more resilient, clean economy by connecting the right people with the right opportunities, solutions and partners. Our goals are simple: we want to give you connections, tools and information that empower you to act—not only so that you get through the current COVID-19 crisis, but so that you can be an integral part of  advancing the clean economy.

GLOBE Virtual includes a wide range of topics and formats to meet the changing needs of businesses and governments. Be part of the community who are not only shaping the green recovery efforts, but leading them.


Upcoming Events

Webinar: Innovation Pathways and Transition Finance Towards Future-Fit Hydrocarbons

In partnership with Energy Futures Lab and The Delphi Group

Date: June 25, 2020
Time: 10:00-11:00am PT, 1:00-2:00pm ET

Attracting capital is a major priority for the energy industry, a crisis made even more urgent by the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and oil price collapse in the first quarter of 2020. One potential pathway for organizations to raise capital could fall under the nascent definition of “transition finance”, which applies to projects and firms that help transition emissions-intensive sectors, facilities, and projects to lower-carbon alternatives.

Building on the GLOBE Advance session on future-fit hydrocarbons at GLOBE 2020, the work of the Energy Futures Lab and other actors on related innovation, and the ongoing work of the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Group to develop a Taxonomy on Transition and Sustainable Finance, this session will explore:

  • What innovation pathways are key to making Canada’s hydrocarbon resources fit for the future?
  • In light of global investors’ increasing concern with climate change and growing appetite for low-emissions/transition-oriented opportunities, how might transition finance support innovation for future-fit hydrocarbons?
  • What public policy mechanisms might help attract greater investment into innovation and infrastructure for future-fit hydrocarbons?

Stay tuned for registration and speaker details for this event!


Coming soon: Webinars, industry dialogues and matchmaking activities on game-changing topics:

  • Transportation
  • Scaling Cleantech
  • Blue Economy
  • Social Purpose

These GLOBE Virtual events will take the GLOBE Advance 2020 conversations to the next level, driving transactions and outcomes that benefit us all. Accelerating action in these areas will not only help us address the climate crisis and build a more sustainable future, it will also help us create jobs and economic opportunities at a time when we need them most. This is a can’t-miss event series for Canada’s leaders in the clean economy.
