Scheduled for March 14 – 16, 2012 at the Vancouver Convention Centre East, GLOBE is North America’s largest and longest-running international gathering focused on the business of the environment, attended by hundreds of senior representatives from the public, private and NGO sectors.

Organizers of GLOBE 2012 have looked to Offsetters to help offset the greenhouse gas emissions associated with hosting the event, rendering the conference and trade fair carbon neutral. Offsetters was also a sponsor for GLOBE 2010, the last time the biennial event was held.

“GLOBE is a fantastic event, attracting well-known environmental policymakers and business leaders,” said Kari Grist, senior vice president marketing and client engagement for Offsetters. “All of us here at Offsetters are honoured to, once again, come onboard as a sponsor and help offset the greenhouse gas emissions of this event.”

Over the years, Offsetters has helped a number of prominent, world-class events measure and offset their greenhouse gas emissions, including the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games, the 98th and 99th Grey Cup, and the 2010 World Climate Summit in Cancun, Mexico.

“It’s incredibly important for us to exemplify the high standards for environmental responsibility that are at the core of our event,” says John Wiebe, President and CEO of the GLOBE Foundation, organizers of GLOBE 2012. “We’d like to thank Offsetters for providing us with the support they have over the years to help GLOBE reach its carbon neutrality goals.”
