The GLOBE Forum is North America’s largest and longest-running Leadership Summit for Sustainable Business – with the last forum attracting over 10,000 participants from 50 countries - a unique combination of policymakers, investors, CEOs, and civil society leaders, along with 300 members of the media.
At the International CCS Knowledge Centre, we believe that environment and economy go together – and CCUS offers a ready-to-go clean technology that ensures economic and energy security while the world transitions to renewables. We also recognize the urgency and collective responsibility to act now to mitigate climate change – which is why we, along with CCUS experts, researchers, and advocates across the CCUS eco-system, for the first time, were on mass at the GLOBE Forum.
The International CCS Knowledge Centre hoted two aspects of the Globe Forum.
CCUS Cluster: The first was a CCUS Cluster with over 20 exhibitors at the Innovation Expo – held over three days, March 14-16, 2018. The CCUS Cluster had its own theatre with scheduled events throughout each of the days, including presentations from exhibitors, media announcements, Dragon's Den style presentations.
CCUS Day: The second aspect was a full-day side-event dedicated to CCUS on Thursday March 15th. This CCUS Day had four panel discussions, namely: ‘CCUS Supporting the Energy Transition for Coal and Other Industries”, “The Beautiful Minds of CCUS – Getting to the 2 Degrees Target”, “Financing Cleantech and the Role of Carbon Pricing” and, “CCUS Acceptance and Access”.

As far as conferences go, it may be interesting to note that that this was the first time that CCUS has been included as part of the Globe Forum series. It is our hope that this profile helps push the tipping point of global understanding of CCUS and its necessity in the two-degree conversation.
