The key to Ceres’ success and strength is its ability to mobilize a powerful coalition of more than 140 environmental and social nonprofit organizations, investment firms, and foundations committed to sustainability. The Ceres Coalition engages with investors, companies, policy-makers and other capital market influencers to build sustainability leadership and collectively drive change.

Ceres Coalition members have the opportunity to participate in Ceres-led company engagements, sharing critical insights and information companies need to strengthen their corporate performance and disclosure on material sustainability issues. This allows member organizations to connect with peer groups and partner with large corporations through a solutions-oriented process that will support their organization’s own advocacy efforts and mission.

Members also have the opportunity to engage with the Ceres Policy Network and Ceres campaigns to advocate for stronger climate, clean energy and water policies in the U.S.

Join a powerful coalition of environmental and social nonprofit organizations, investment firms, and foundations committed to building a sustainable global economy.
