Ceres is a sustainability nonprofit organization working with the most influential investors and companies to build leadership and drive solutions throughout the economy. Through powerful networks and advocacy, Ceres tackles the world’s biggest sustainability challenges, including climate change, water scarcity and pollution, and human rights abuses.
Our mission: Ceres is transforming the economy to build a sustainable future for people and the planet.
In response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, Ceres was founded by a group of forward-looking investors and environmentalists who had a vision for a better way of doing business. Led by Joan Bavaria, they began to re-evaluate the role and responsibility of companies as stewards of the environment and agents of economic and social change.
Today, with more than 30 years of leadership and proven results, we’re more confident than ever in the business case for sustainability. We know a just and sustainable global economy benefits both people and the planet. And we know that investors and companies that integrate sustainability into decision-making outperform their peers.
