Ceres is a non-profit organization advocating for sustainability leadership. We mobilize a powerful network of investors, companies and public interest groups to accelerate and expand the adoption of sustainable business practices and solutions to build a healthy global economy. Our Mission: Mobilizing investor and business leadership to build a thriving, sustainable global economy. This year, Ceres is celebrating 25 years of advancing a sustainable economy. Learn more about our vision, history and major accomplishments toward ensuring a low-carbon, clean energy future. Founded by a small group of investors in 1989 in response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill, Ceres has been working for more than 20 years to weave sustainable strategies and practices into the fabric and decision-making of companies, investors and other key economic players. Ceres works with more than 130 member organizations that make up the Ceres Coalition to engage with corporations and help advance our goal of building a sustainable global economy. These members include environmental and social nonprofit groups such as NRDC, Union of Concerned Scientists and Oxfam, institutional investors such as the California and New York public pension funds, socially responsible investors (SRIs), labor unions and other key stakeholders. In recent years, Ceres has expanded the coalition’s expertise to include more social issues such as diversity and human rights.
