For the last 25 years, the GLOBE Series has been at the
forefront of new ideas and vital insights on business
and sustainability. We have helped corporations embed
sustainability into their operations, influenced the global
debate on climate change, and accelerated the market for
clean technologies and services.

Over the next quarter century, more than three billion new
middle-class consumers will place unprecedented stresses
on the planet’s available resources. Nothing less than a
revolution in our thinking will be required to provide the
quality of life people will demand while protecting our
increasingly vulnerable natural environment. Join us at
GLOBE 2014 as we explore how businesses can build
resilience and thrive in a rapidly evolving marketplace.

The GLOBE 2014 Conference
The GLOBE 2014 Conference will provide provocative insights on the
world’s most pressing energy and sustainability-related issues. Find out
