Welcome to the website of GLOBE (Global Legislators Organisation for a Balanced Environment).
GLOBE’s purpose is to facilitate high level dialogues amongst legislators on key environmental issues. These dialogues are led by legislators but involve international business leaders and civil society representatives. Their objective is to urge effective action by governments and private sector leaders.
As the environment attracts greater political attention there is a particular need for legislators to work together outside of formal international negotiations. In particular, legislators can push the boundaries of what can be achieved politically as well as develop new ideas without the constraints of formal government negotiating positions. Legislators also have a critical role in holding their own governments to account for the commitments that are made internationally.
