The world has it’s eye on sustainability, energy, and what we need to do as a collective to reduce GHG emissions and create a sustainable world for future generations.
The leadership summit for sustainable business, The GLOBE Conference & Innovation Expo, which takes place every 2 years in Vancouver, begins next week, March 2-4 at the Vancouver Convention & Exhibition Center. The prevailing theme of the Globe Conference is innovation.
For the past 25 years, the GLOBE™ Series has served as the nexus for global networking and leadership on the business of the environment.
“GLOBE 2016 Conference & Innovation Expo (GLOBE 2016), is the next GLOBE event within the iconic GLOBE Series, North America’s largest and longest-running Conference and Exposition series dedicated to business innovation for the planet. A world-leading sustainability GLOBE Conference coupled with an exciting GLOBE Innovation Exposition, GLOBE™ is about relationship building to fuel your business. It’s about thinking outside the box. It’s where leaders come to devise winning strategies to conserve resources, ignite innovation, and develop ideas and partnerships that help them be more resilient, more efficient, and reduce risk.”

Delegates can expect to hear from international experts, project developers and investors, and potential partners/buyers, as they discuss economic drivers, priorities, and market updates from international regions.
The event will boldly kick off on March 2 with a discussion on “The Big Picture” by none other than Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, joined by BC Premier Christy Clark.
“The future belongs to countries and businesses that become leaders of clean technologies, innovation, and sustainability.
