AMERICA: Remember this name….CERES! Major Environmental (Green) Corporations Using Activists To Push Climate Agenda (Cap and Trade). They Need To Be Exposed!

About Us

Ceres (pronounced “series”) is a national network of investors, environmental organizations and other public interest groups working with companies and investors to address sustainability challenges such as global climate change.

Mission: Integrating sustainability into capital markets for the health of the planet and its people.



The global economy is at a crossroads. Our climate is warming due to human behavior. Short-term thinking has left us with a financial crisis. Ever-increasing food and water shortages are undermining governments and exacerbating global poverty.

At Ceres, we work for a world where capital markets advance the health of the planet and its people. Our mission is to improve the functioning of the capital markets so that the future is livable, safe and just for everyone. [*Note the words just or justice = SOCIALISM*]

Over the last 20 years, Ceres has created the tools to weave environmental and social challenges into the global business fabric.

Growing Leverage:

With a growing network of over 80 companies, 130 NGOs and $7 trillion of investor assets, Ceres leverages power. As we grow, our successes get bigger and the solutions get bolder.


Change the rules of the game:

Passage of national climate change legislation
to reduce GHG emissions by at least
25% below 1990 levels by 2020 and 80%
by 2050.

Passage of a new international climate
, including a binding reduction target
based on the latest scientific findings.


One of our strategies:

Leverage SEC oversight role to achieve full corporate disclosure of climate and other sustainability risks: Using landmark petition, Congressional support and investor demand to spur action from SEC.

Ceres companies are committed to improving their environment and social performance by engaging with environmental groups, investors and other stake holders to integrate environmental and social factors into their business strategies.
