GLOBE 2010 SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE

Organizers recognize the importance of integrating sustainability considerations into the design and delivery of the GLOBEā„¢ Series and have taken a number of steps to enhance the sustainability performance of GLOBE 2010 including:

  • Eliminating the use and provision of delegate bags, resulting in significant decreases in resource consumption and waste generation.

  • Partnering with Hemlock Printers Ltd. to ensure all marketing materials are produced on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, 100% post consumer recycled content paper, resulting in measurable environmental savings including reduced emissions to air, water, and land.

  • Developing a Smart Phone Application which provides participants with a 'paperless program', including the full conference schedule, session descriptions, speaker bios, floorplans, tourism maps, restaurant links, currency converters and much more. Favouring electronic means of communication allows for a reduction in paper consumption as well as waste generation.  

  • Partnering with Offsetters, Canada's first and leading integrated carbon management provider, who is generously providing the carbon offsets to make GLOBE 2010 a carbon neutral event. Since 2005, Offsetters has been helping individuals and organizations, understand, reduce, track and offset their greenhouse gas emissions.
