This week, hundreds of business executives, government officials and influential members of civil society from 50 countries will meet in Vancouver to discuss market-driven solutions to environmental challenges at the GLOBE 2016 Leadership Summit for Sustainable Business. While there, they'll have a chance to see Canada in a new way: by exploring the Royal Canadian Geographical Society's giant floor map of Canada's Boreal Forest.
The map will be on display in the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement booth at the GLOBE Innovation Expo, which highlights successful sustainability partnerships and clean technologies.
The GLOBE Series is North America's largest and most influential gathering of sustainable business leaders. This year's summit is focused on how business and government can work together to take action on commitments made at December's COP21 climate summit in Paris.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will deliver the opening keynote address on Wednesday, while Minister of Natural Resources James Carr, Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development Navdeep Bains and BC Premier Christy Clark will contribute to topical panel discussions.
