VANCOUVER, B.C., Nov. 22 /CSRwire/ - They come from different organizations, industries, and backgrounds, but their mission is the same: to find business solutions to some of the world’s biggest environmental challenges. From March 14 to 16, 2012 they will meet in Vancouver, Canada at GLOBE 2012.
Representing some of the world's most environmentally forward-thinking and acting companies and organizations, CEOs, Vice-Presidents, Chief Sustainability Officers, and government leaders will take the stage in Vancouver to spark a dialogue about how sustainable and innovative business practices can help both the planet and the 'triple bottom line'.
Revolving around the thematic concept of 'Building a Sustainable Economy for the 21st Century', a selection of GLOBE 2012 conference sessions will focus on determining a strategic and successful path on the 'Road to Rio+20', the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
“The individuals who will take the stage at GLOBE 2012 are international thought leaders with the knowledge and power to exact change,” says John Wiebe, President and CEO of the GLOBE Foundation.
Confirmed Speakers to date include:
Long-time GLOBE participant and confirmed speaker at GLOBE 2012, Samir Brikho, Chief Executive at AMEC in the UK commented, "There are lots of ideas coming out of GLOBE. When you gather the brains of the world together to discuss how to calibrate better across industries and deal with the challenging issues…we have better than what we have done in the past."
"You get 'infected' with people who are really energized around sustainability and around a low carbon economy…it's all about sharing and energizing and taking ideas back to your company," says Daniel Hendrix, President and CEO, Interface Inc., USA.
