This is a summary report of The 21st Century Investor: Ceres Blueprint for Sustainable Investing (the “Ceres Investor Blueprint”), released in June 2013. Download the full report here. The Ceres Investor Blueprint is intended to guide investors along a path to becoming what we call “sustainable investors" —investors who understand that the 21st century economy will be shaped by powerful forces such as climate change, population growth, rising demand for energy, declining supplies of fresh water and other natural resources, and protection of human rights and worker health and safety. To protect current and future beneficiaries, and maximize risk-adjusted returns, sustainable investors will need to mitigate the risks and seize the opportunities arising from these sustainability challenges.

By operating and investing sustainably, companies and investors will be contributing significantly to the creation of a sustainable economy—one that meets the needs of people today without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. The Ceres Investor Blueprint is designed to help investors act on their growing concern about sustainability by providing a set of 10 concrete action steps that will move them along a path towards becoming sustainable investors.
