About Us

In 1993 the GLOBE Foundation, a not-for-profit private business Foundation, was established in Vancouver to carry forward our mandate to promote the business case for sustainable development. Our philosophy? Companies can do well by doing good without sacrificing the bottom line, and environmental challenges bring enormous opportunity for the business sector.

Our three guiding principles:

1. Environmental problems are business opportunities. 2. Companies that can provide clean technologies and solutions will prosper. 3. Proactive organizations that embrace environmental sustainability will be more competitive

Since 1993, these emerging truths have guided and shaped our activities as we promote and frame sustainability as a sound business strategy. Each of the areas in which the GLOBE Foundation operates revolves around amplifying the concept that protecting the environment will result in a better bottom line for business. Eco-efficiency is profitable not only for those who devise the solutions, but also those that use them. All of our activities, from our events series to our consulting and communication products, mobilize these ideas into the culminating result of being the first entity to focus on developing the business of the environment - not only in Canada, but around the globe.
