Ceres Coalition

The Ceres Coalition, comprised of more than 130 institutional and socially responsible investors, environmental groups and public interest organizations, engages directly with Ceres network companies on the environmental and social challenges they face. These dialogues help companies better understand their environmental and social impacts, effectively identify emerging risks, and seize opportunities that meaningfully improve their sustainability performance and disclosure.

Key to Ceres’ success and strength is our ability to mobilize a powerful coalition of investors and environmental, social and public interest groups to accelerate sustainable business strategies and promote effective policy to drive business accountability.

The Ceres Coalition comprises more than 130 institutional and socially responsible investors, environmental and social advocacy groups and other public interest organizations.

The Ceres Coalition works to promote sustainability by moving companies, policy makers and other market players to incorporate environmental and social factors into their decision-making and to mobilize investor and business leadership to build a thriving, sustainable global economy.

Many Ceres Coalition members engage directly with Ceres Network Companies to develop solutions to key environmental and social challenges. One opportunity is through Ceres-led stakeholder dialogues that help member companies better understand their environmental and social impacts, effectively identify emerging risks and seize opportunities that meaningfully improve their sustainability performance and disclosure.

Join the Ceres Coalition

Ceres seeks to create new partnerships with like minded organizations committed to sustainability. As an advocate for sustainability leadership, Ceres brings together a powerful economic coalition transforming business practices to reduce environmental and social risk. Whether the scope of your organization’s work is local, national or international, we would like to explore with you the possibility of working together toward shared goals.

Indra Nooyi Pepsi“To address the tough environmental and social issues facing global corporations today, we need to hear from a diverse group of stakeholders who challenge us to innovate and operate in a sustainable manner. No one has access to such a vast network of valuable, independent input as Ceres.”

Indra Nooyi, Chairman and CEO, PepsiCo
