Ceres 25: The Future is Now

Due to the impending blizzard in New York, Ceres 25: The Future Is Now has been cancelled for Tuesday evening.

Ceres will be working with our sponsors and honorees on when and in what form we might reschedule this celebration, and we will let you know those plans as soon as possible.

All of us at Ceres are so grateful to our sponsors, host committee, partners, supporters, and friends who were planning on joining us for this celebration of Ceres 25th anniversary.  We couldn't do our work without you, and we were very much looking forward to having you with us at this special milestone.  We have every hope of rescheduling our celebration in some form, and we hope you will again be able to join us.

Thank you for your understanding of this unfortunate situation. Please reach out to Brittany Cipriano

Ceres at 25

MindyCelebration.jpgA quarter of a century ago, a small group of investors founded Ceres largely in response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Their idea was to bring environmentalist and corporations together to forge a new sustainable business model, one that would protect the health of the planet and the long-term prosperity of its people.

Over our 25-year history, Ceres has introduced numerous tools to change the rules of the road in the capital markets in ways that accelerate the transition to a low-carbon, clean energy economy. From introducing “climate risk” to investors, to the Ceres Roadmap for Sustainability, Ceres has transformed the way corporations integrate environmental and social risks into their decision-making. Our mission is to mobilize business and investor leadership to build a thriving sustainable global economy.
