  4. 4. GLOBE Conference Themes Include_ + Conference Themes + International Delegates + Clarence Cazalot + Gregory Ebel + John Prescott Energy & Carbon Management Operating successfully in today’s global economy presents enormous business opportunities, but also enormous risk. GLOBE is where innovative technology, visionary leadership and clear public policy come together to shape the future of the low carbon economy. Water Our most abundant natural resource and the most badly managed, water is the life blood of business, society and our economy. GLOBE is where the sustainable management of the world’s water resources becomes a living imperative shaping business and public policy. Sustainable Finance & Investment The global economy has been shaken to the core in recent years and is slowly regaining strength. But how will the financial, investment, insurance, and capital market landscapes operate as the world transitions to the low carbon economy of tomorrow? GLOBE is where the answers become clear. Global Food Security Feeding the world’s growing population is becoming an increasingly troubling global challenge. Climate change already is threatening traditional food growing regions and famine is a new reality in many parts of the world. GLOBE addresses head on what could become the most pressing dilemma of our generation. Clean Capitalism The world of business is changing. Increased competition, growing consumer and stakeholder demands for more transparency in the marketplace, and tighter government regulation has given clean capitalism a new face. How can we make ‘sustainability’ the fundamental operating parameter for corporate policy, financial management and product design? GLOBE has the answers. Technology & Innovation The pace of technological innovation has accelerated almost beyond comprehension. Leading companies are using new and more energy efficient technologies to innovate across product lifecycles and to ‘future proof’ their brands. GLOBE is where they find the inspiration for change. Cities The future of humanity is an urban future. Cities must become more efficient, healthier, more resilient and more compact. GLOBE incubates the ideas that will shape where we live, work and play.
