    Globe Capital 2019: Financing the 21st Century

    Where leaders in finance, infrastructure and cleantech meet to capitalize on opportunities in the clean economy.

    The clean economy is the biggest opportunity of our lifetime. Global investment in advanced low-carbon infrastructure is projected to reach $90 trillion by 2030. The market for clean technologies is currently worth $1.15 trillion, and cleantech is one of the main sectors that is poised to grow exponentially.

    Join us at GLOBE Capital as we discuss how to align risk and return requirements, become more competitive, and unlock the capital that will help us realize the economic opportunity.

    Webinar: Recalling and Updating the Triple Bottom Line with John Elkington

    In a 2018 article in Harvard Business Review, John Elkington, Chairman of Volans, writes: “How often are management concepts subjected to recalls by the people who invented them? It is hard to think of a single case. With this in mind, I’m volunteering to carry out a management concept recall: with 2019 marking the 25th anniversary of the “triple bottom line,” a term I coined in 1994, I propose a strategic recall to do some fine tuning.”

    Elkington adds, “So why recall it now? The Triple Bottom Line has failed to bury the single bottom line paradigm. From the outset, the goal was system change — pushing toward the transformation of capitalism. It was never supposed to be just an accounting system. It was originally intended as a genetic code, a triple helix of change for tomorrow’s capitalism, with a focus on breakthrough change, disruption, asymmetric growth (with unsustainable sectors actively sidelined), and the scaling of next-generation market solutions.”

    In this live, virtual fireside chat, Impact Entrepreneur’s Laurie Lane-Zucker discusses with Elkington the motivations behind his coining of the TBL concept, his perceived failure of the concept to achieve its intended ends, and how the concept can be updated to effectively leverage the kinds of system change necessary to transform business and contribute to the building of an authentically sustainable impact economy.

    Webinar: Scale the Impact of your Market Systems Program Through Volunteer Engagement

    International NGOs have been working with volunteers for as long as the development sector has existed, but the means through which volunteers contribute to development objectives have evolved over time. This webinar is designed to examine how skilled volunteers can contribute to market systems development outcomes. The presenters will discuss recent innovations through a number of concrete examples. Evidence will be shared on skills-based volunteering as a means to bring new talent into market systems programs and to tap into a steady pipeline of advisors, facilitators, and investors. We will also focus on the planning, training, and monitoring required to make the best use of volunteers in market systems programming, and demonstrate how volunteers can contribute to sustainable impact at scale.

    This webinar will:

    • Address commonly held misconceptions about volunteer programming
    • Share successful models and lessons learned related to engaging volunteers
    • Highlight examples of how skilled volunteers have contributed to tangible results and impacts
    • Identify opportunities for funders, organizations, and professionals to harness volunteer expertise

    The three speakers and their respective organizations each bring many years of experience designing, implementing, and evaluating international volunteer programs.
