VANCOUVER, B.C., Nov. 09 /CSRwire/ - Giving further credence to its reputation as a major world platform to transform environmental challenges into business opportunities, the 12th edition of the GLOBE Series of events has unveiled its strongest and most relevant conference program to date.
Built around the thematic concept of ‘Building a Sustainable Economy for the 21st Century’, the GLOBE 2012 agenda explores untapped and emerging opportunities for advancing the business of the environment. The program casts a spotlight on business strategies, capital market mechanisms, clean technologies, urban sustainability innovations, and the cutting edge ideas that are poised to become winners over the next decade and beyond.
“Governments and corporations around the world are feeling the pressure of unstable markets, coupled with recessionary forces and spending restraints,” says John Wiebe, President and CEO of the GLOBE Foundation. “At GLOBE 2012 we’ll focus on how companies, investors, financial firms and governments can enhance environmental performance and advance sustainability, ultimately accelerating the development of a more sustainable economy and improving their own bottom line.”
At GLOBE 2012, internationally recognized thought-leaders will converse on topics such as: Efficient Water use by Corporations; Carbon Confusion: What’s Next for Global Climate Policy; Burning Issues for Tomorrow’s Cities: Bioenergy, District Heating and Waste-to-Energy Systems; Sustainable Consumerism: What’s Driving Demand for Today’s Eco-Friendly Products and Services?
To encourage discussion and interactivity, conference sessions will be dynamic panels of three to four speakers led by a moderator who will facilitate extensive discussion, question-and-answer periods, and audience participation. Register before November 30th and save $600.
