An exclusive interview with Dr. John Wiebe

Leading up to the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD), aka Rio+20, which plans to set the global sustainability agenda for the next decade, was last month's UN Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI) Global Roundtable, an international high-level summit held in Washington, DC.

Focusing on the role that the financial sector should play in that agenda, the roundtable carried the theme of 'The Tipping Point: Sustained stability in the next economy.'

In attendance was Dr. John Wiebe, a member of UNEP FI's Expert Group on Responsible Investment and President & CEO of the Vancouver-based GLOBE Foundation, a not-for-profit private business foundation established in 1993 to promote the advancement of sustainable development throughout the private sector.

The GLOBE Foundation is the organizer of the biennial GLOBE Conference & Trade Fair on Business and the Environment, taking place March 14-16 in Vancouver, Canada. I had a chance to ask Dr. Wiebe what he thought about the UNEP FI roundtable, the effect of a proactive private sector and what the sustainable 'next economy' might look like.
