Ceres mobilizes the most influential investors and companies in tackling climate change as a sustainability issue that must be addressed at every level of business and investment planning and operations. We work with investors and companies to ramp up global sustainable investments in clean energy and sustainable food and water systems. Our investor network members also advocate for robust climate disclosure in financial filings and engage directly with companies to improve sustainability performance. This work is done across key sectors affected the most by climate change, including electric power, oil and gas, transportation, insurance and agriculture.
