The Ceres Investor Network on Climate Risk and Sustainability comprises more than 130 institutional investors, collectively managing more than $17 trillion in assets, advancing leading investment practices, corporate engagement strategies and policy solutions to build an equitable, sustainable global economy and planet.
Influential investors from leading asset management firms, public pension funds, labor and socially-responsible investment funds, foundations, endowments and family offices make up the Ceres Investor Network. Members include BlackRock, State Street Global Advisors and TIAA-CREF, as well as public pension funds in California, Florida, New York and Quebec.
Ceres Investor Network members engage and collaborate on environmental, social, and governance issues to advance leading investment practices, corporate engagement strategies and policy solutions through working groups and shared learning opportunities, such as webinars and events. Ceres works with investors specifically to better manage carbon, water and supply chain risks, and ramp up global investments in clean energy and sustainable food and water systems.
In addition, the Ceres Investor Network members pressure stock exchanges and capital market regulators to improve climate and sustainability risk disclosure, and opportunities to advocate for stronger climate, clean energy and water policies at all levels of government.
