GLOBE Forum 2024: Where leaders and change makers accelerate solutions for a regenerative, resilient, net-zero economy


The world is rising to meet the immense social, economic, and environmental challenges of our time, and there are more opportunities to create value in the clean economy than ever before. It is no longer enough to simply reduce our environmental impact or repair the damage that has already been done.  We need to rethink what’s possible, reimagine our economy, and reach beyond sustainability to regeneration.

At GLOBE Forum 2022 and GLOBExCHANGE 2023, we brought together global sustainability and climate leaders to accelerate action on the path to net zero. 

And our work can’t stop there.       

We need to dig deeper into solutions that help us reach net zero as we build climate resiliency across sectors. We need to accelerate action that ensures our water security and restores our natural environment on a global scale. We need to work together to turn our toughest sustainability challenges into the biggest opportunities of our lifetime.     

At GLOBE Forum 2024, you’ll be inspired to go further and faster on the road to a regenerative future. You’ll build the business partnerships, foster the connections, and accelerate the solutions to drive positive impacts for our economy, for our planet, and for humanity.

UNEP FI had the opportunity to collaborate with GLOBE Series to host our Regional Roundtable on Sustainable Finance for North America at GLOBExCHANGE. The UNEP FI team was impressed with the professionalism, subject matter knowledge, and commitment to diversity and inclusion exhibited by the GLOBE Series team in the lead up to the roundtable and onsite. The UNEP FI Roundtable was a resounding success, driving impact and outcomes toward the future of sustainable finance, and GLOBE Series contributed immensely to its success.

Participating in GLOBEXCHANGE in Toronto allowed me to gain some inspiring insights into the manifold ways that Canada is preparing for climate change adaptation whilst at the same time strongly committing to limiting the impact from climate change as much as possible. This was a get together for people from a broad variety of backgrounds, industry and finance, all levels of government, associations and grass root organizations. And the bottom-line from all these different contributions was: Canada is on the move. We understand the enormous scale of the necessary changes and we are going about designing and implementing changes in all sectors of our economy and our society, step by step, yet with a great sense of urgency. It has been very encouraging to see how the complexity and the size of the challenges is leading to such a broad and rich set of strategies, initiatives and projects. The conference did not only offer a unique opportunity to learn about developments and activities in so many different sectors and throughout all regions of Canada; it also provided a forum for mutual exchange of ideas and information as well as for some cross-fertilization of new approaches and out-of-the-box thinking between many different stakeholders. I am so glad to have been given the opportunity to participate!

GLOBEx CHANGE held at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Feb 27-Mar 1, 2023. It was a pleasure working with the staff of this event who were thorough professionals and very creative in their even planning. Globe 2023 was sustainability focused event in all aspects of their conference. The steps they took to reduce their carbon footprint included, but were not limited to the following:

  • Plant forward meals
  • Paperless meetings to reduce waste
  • No plastic/bottled water usage
  • Participating in housekeeping on demand to save water and energy
  • Using Recyclable lanyards
  • Making use of Digital Signage for their branding

Looking forward to collaborating with GLOBE events in future towards their goal of the race to net zero emissions.

The GLOBExCHANGE conference surpassed my expectations going into the event. Delegates were provided several opportunities to connect with like-minded, incredibly talented sustainability professionals who are all committed to the same challenge of fighting climate change. The tone of the event was very up-beat, and I left with a renewed sense of motivation that we can do this! The variety of session formats at GLOBExCHANGE kept me engaged, and were incredibly informative. I wish I could have attended more sessions, but look forward to next year’s conference to continue the momentum.

GLOBExCHANGE provided an outstanding platform to convene with leaders in the sustainability space to discuss a wide variety of subjects from scope 3 emissions to sustainable finance. The varying session formats, from plenary sessions to intimate working groups, enabled increased interaction and highlighted a diversity of specializations and perspectives. GLOBExCHANGE was extremely well organized, and I look forward to attending the next GLOBE Series event.

Like any other GLOBE event, the GLOBExCHANGE program was developed by sustainability and ESG professionals so there’s a “for us, and by us” approach that you see and feel in the program, speakers, and the angle for each topic.

I’m so impressed by the diversity of speakers at GLOBExCHANGE. You’ve got CEOs on panels with climate risk and insurance experts, and in the next room there are Indigenous business leaders sharing the mic with politicians. And same goes for delegates. There are VPs of ESG with decades of experience taking notes just as diligently as young professionals or students from the Leading Change Forum.

The format for GLOBExCHANGE allows you to create your own adventure that isn’t back-to-back monologs and PowerPoints. There are good discussions, and the workshop-style breakout sessions also made it easier to meet exchange ideas with people outside your own bubble!

GLOBExChange brought together people at the forefront of the climate change challenge in Canada. It was a fantastic opportunity to connect across industries and to share stories of our successes and challenges. Events like GLOBE help advance the public discourse around climate change and highlight how every person, company, and country must do its part to create climate solutions.
