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.
