- "Global Trust must secure its position as a global market leader. Merger with other companies, smashing of competitors... these decisions must be made. That's how it is in business: eat or be eaten."

Appraisal in the Campaign
In the campaign of Anno 2070, Global Trust is in the process of constructing a new hydroelectric dam in Site 13, as part of the Two Year Plan. The plan is an energy target set by the company, and supervised by the once respected Thor Strindberg. Site 13 is a vital crossroad in trade and oil extraction. The installation of the turbine will increase the dams power efficiency by 46.8%, allowing the target to be reached.
Due to poor foresight, delays, and a lack of testing, the dam breaks putting the entire operation at risk. After seeing that the area was destined for destruction, Global Trust attempts to resecure the island but abandons it after efforts become futile. After this failure, Strindberg is suspended from operations and replaced with a new hotshot.
Despite one disaster having already occurred, a runaway oil tanker collides with an oil platform. This causes the platform to explode violently and an oil spill to form on a neighboring island. After receiving word of the oil spill, an Eden Initiative Ark with Yana Rodriguez enters the sector, and begins the cleanup efforts. After the spill is cleaned, a mysterious S.A.A.T. Ark with Prof. Dr. Salman Devi arrives in the sector. Global Trust agrees to help find the Virago, under the condition they gain insight on the technologies used onboard.
Global Trust sends Manager Russel to offer financial support in the research of the Virago, however this ended in disaster. Upon hearing of the destruction of C.O.R.E., Global Trust sends Rufus Thorne to the sector to negotiate with Prof. Dr. Salman Devi and his associate. After learning that F.A.T.H.E.R. had stolen nuclear missiles and uranium from Global Trust, the company agrees to declare war against the infected AI. Global Trust support the fight with a war fleet.
The original logo of Global Trust is based on a burning candlestick. That 'old' logo was modernized to the one used in 2070, but can still be seen on underwater rubble.
After Anno 2070
It is revealed in Anno 2205 that Global Trust began a campaign to colonize the Solar System, however was unsuccessful at building one on Mars. For unspecified reasons this colony was left to die. Subsequently, Global Trust went bankrupt and sold its shares to Lei Sheng Electricity and Usoyev Inc.
