25 Years of Impact
This year marks a big milestone for Ceres, our 25th anniversary.
A quarter of a century ago, a small group of investors founded Ceres largely in response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill that occurred on March 24, 1989. The idea was to bring environmentalists and capitalists 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 weave environmental and social challenges into company and investor decision-making and the capital markets. And we’ve enjoyed many successes.
Each month, we'll highlight one of Ceres' major accomplishments toward our vision for building a more sustainable global economy. Click on one of the 'revealed' impacts below to learn more.
Ceres and the United Nations Foundation co-hosted the first Investor Summit on Climate Risk at the United Nations. At the Summit, Ceres and a group of investors launched the Investor Network on Climate Risk (INCR), etching the term “climate risk” into the financial lexicon and spurring a decade of climate action.
