Ceres 25: The Future is Now


Thank you, our partners, friends and supporters, for making Ceres 25: The Future is Now a great success!

See more images from the Ceres 25 event on our Facebook page.

We were honored to have truly pioneering leaders, Indra Nooyi, PepsiCo Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, and David Blood, Generation Investment Management Co-Founder, share their bold visions for a more sustainable future.

And we're grateful to our emcee Andrew Winston for moving the evening forward with trenchant insights, grace and good humor.

Thanks to the generosity of the Ceres community, Ceres raised nearly double our fundraising goal in gifts for Ceres 25. These resources further our mission to build an economy that both sustains prosperity and protects the planet. Your contributions make a huge difference, and we can't thank you enough.

If you joined us at Ceres 25, we hope you left feeling as inspired as we did to build a more sustainable world. If you could not make it, we hope you’ll consider other opportunities to join us in the future, such as the annual Ceres Conference.

Thank you again to our Ceres 25 host committee, our generous sponsors and to all of our guests. We look forward to seeing you at Ceres 30!

Ceres at 25

A 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.
