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." [1]

"GLOBE International was founded in 1989 as an inter-parliamentary group between the US Congress and European Parliament to respond to urgent environmental challenges. The founding members of GLOBE were US Congressmen Scheuer and Sikorski, US Senator John Heinz and MEPs Munting, Pimenta, Banotti, Roelants du Vivier and Seligman." [2]

Funding

On its website GLOBE International states that it "receives support from Governments, Inter-governmental bodies such as the World Bank and also from corporate membership of GLOBE's policy themed Dialogues." However, it does not publicly disclose on its website who it receives support from.[3]
