VANCOUVER, B.C., Oct. 07 /CSRwire/ - Top executives and sustainability experts from some of the world’s largest and most successful corporations have now signed on to share their insights and experiences, and develop new concepts for managing sustainability initiatives in a new economy at the upcoming GLOBE 2012 Conference and Trade Fair happening March 14-16, 2012 in Vancouver, Canada.

From Microsoft, eBay Inc., Dow, Ford Motor Company, and Interface Global to PepsiCo, Tetra Pak, Shell International, Suncor, Cenovus, Encana, RBC Royal Bank, Dole Food Company Inc., and more, most successful companies recognize that even in unstable economic times, making a connection between business and the environment is paramount, and that maintaining strong sustainability initiatives is, ultimately, beneficial to the planet and the bottom line.

“It’s not often, if ever, that this many high-caliber international executives and sustainability experts can be found under one roof at one time,” says John Wiebe, President and CEO of the GLOBE Foundation. “We look forward to welcoming representatives of these corporations as they gather to advance the discussion on the economic advantages of developing and implementing strong sustainability initiatives and operations.”
