“BASF Canada participated in GLOBE Capital with a particular emphasis on building awareness about the Value Balancing Alliance (VBA). During this engagement the GLOBE team did an excellent job of working together with BASF and VBA to organise a Spark Talk Session and subsequent Roundtable which allowed participants to learn the highlights of VBA as well as deep dive into a more technical discussion. The GLOBE team was extremely organized with end-to-end management of the event and we were pleased with the outcome and the participation level. Thank you, GLOBE!”
