The Leadership Summit for Sustainable Business

Join Us in Canada’s Fastest Growing Economy and One of the Greenest Cities in the World



North America’s largest business and sustainability conference, GLOBE, has been held in Vancouver for 28 years. Every two years, GLOBE draws the ‘best and brightest’ of the international sustainable business community, making it an unsurpassed forum for learning and networking. 2018 will be no different.

For GLOBE Forum 2018, the Vancouver Economic Commission (VEC) and the City of Vancouver (CoV) are working closely with GLOBE to support the development of interactive program activities, sessions, and workshops; and facilitating targeted B2B and investor meetings.

The VEC is an active participant in shaping global green economy efforts linked to job creation, technology and trade, partnership development, investment attraction, and R&D. We are excited to help shape these discussions at GLOBE Forum 2018.

A world-leading sustainability conference coupled with an exciting, transaction-focused expo, GLOBE Forum is the flagship event anchoring GLOBE Week in North America every two years.

Produced by Vancouver-based GLOBE Series, GLOBE Forum and Innovation Expo brings together corporations, all levels of government, NGOs, international agencies, technology innovators, and the finance community to manage risks and capitalize on the opportunities in the clean economy.

Join us as we double down on our commitment to do more of what GLOBE does best: Catalyzing collaborations between “unusual suspects” both on and off the stage, and inspiring action to accelerate the transition to a clean economy.
