Think you know GLOBE? Think again.

At GLOBE 2020, delegates had the opportunity to meet corporate executives, European and Asian investor counterparts, cleantech entrepreneurs, young trailblazers and government policy-makers.

We built on all the hallmarks of GLOBE that you love – the diverse network, the top-notch programming and the innovative technology – with a new venue, new networking opportunities and new types of sessions and experiences.

Attendees came to GLOBE to:

  1. Find trusted co-investment partners
  2. Showcase their investment portfolios and growth
  3. Raise awareness about current and new funds
  4. Address capital deployment challenges
  1. Revitalize investment portfolios with innovative corporations and solution providers
  2. Enhance returns while addressing climate and other sustainability risks
  3. Gain market context for clean economy opportunities that lie ahead.

The time to act on opportunities in the clean economy is now.

GLOBE 2020 was a turning point in the conversation about the clean economy. Corporations, all levels of government, NGOs, international agencies, technology innovators, and the finance community met at GLOBE to invest, learn, do deals, find solutions and get inspired.

By being part of discussions and debates, where people are similarly focused and have similar goals and outcomes, helps us to get better. We’re here to learn new and different things, and to work together to move forward and do a better job for our members.

An excellent event at an extraordinary time of change in the global economy. The combination of corporate and government players, technology companies, and finance types made for a very powerful week.

The networking has been amazing at GLOBE. You can literally just walk up to anybody, strike up a conversation, and get deep into sustainability challenges. Sustainability isn’t just about doing business better. We need the older generation to work with the younger generation. ​
If we don’t do that today, we may miss our opportunity.
