ABOUT GLOBE 2010
20 YEARS OF ACCELERATING SUSTAINABLE
The GLOBE™ Series of Conferences and Trade
Fairs are North America's largest and longest-running
international event series dedicated to the business
of the environment.
GLOBE brings together leaders of business and government to
discuss current trends and to showcase innovative technology
solutions for the world's environmental problems. Every two years,
over 10,000 participants from 80
countries gather in Vancouver, for GLOBE generating
well over $400 million in new environmental business.
Government decisions makers, corporate executives, and
environmental technology innovators engage in high-level dialogues
about pressing environmental issues such as corporate
sustainability, clean energy, climate change and carbon management,
finance, and building better cities. We have brought in a host of
well-respected individuals to help make the business case for
eco-efficiency, including HRH Prince Philippe of Belgium, former
Prime Minister Paul Martin, Maurice Strong, Klaus Töepfer, John
Prescott, Mark Moody-Stuart, Amory Lovins and Ray Anderson.
GLOBE Series events have been used to preview innovative ideas
and major multilateral processes for corporate and industry leaders
from around the world in advance of major international gatherings
such as the Rio and Johannesburg World Summits.
