Overview
Ceres seeks to organize businesses and investors to support climate mitigation policies; have those businesses institute more sustainable practices in their businesses—including through their supply chains; and organize the investment community in support of clean energy. Ceres is leading the efforts to promote the Clean Trillion. The theory is that if investments in clean energy can reach one trillion dollars a year, the market will be self-reinforcing. Ceres is also playing a critical role in helping to develop the ClimateWorks finance strategy.
