(3BL Media) Vancouver, Canada – March 6, 2012 – GLOBE 2012 is pleased to announce the addition of The Honourable Peter Kent, Federal Minister of the Environment, to the conference’s Energy Dialogue on Thursday, March 15th at the Vancouver Convention Centre East.

The global energy sector is undergoing a fundamental transformation due to technological innovation, supply fluctuations, and changing economic, regulatory, social, and political landscapes. 

Collaboration and innovation will play critical roles in this transformation that will result in energy companies of the 21st Century working together to achieve a cleaner energy future.

“As Canada emerges as an energy ‘superpower’ there are many challenges as well as tremendous opportunities in the area of environment and energy development.
