Commitment to Action

Driving Investor Strategies on Sustainable Investing

Commitment by

Ceres

In 2013, Ceres, in partnership with CalSTRS, the Office of the New York State Comptroller, and Prudential Investment Management, committed to engage its Investor Network on Climate Risk to promote sustainable investing best practices, and ensure that economic, social, and governance (ESG) factors are recognized by the mainstream investment community as financially material and are integrated accordingly into investment policies and practices. Ceres will guide asset owners, asset managers, and professional service providers towards the successful implementation of the 10 action steps outlined in its 'The 21st Century Investor: Ceres Blueprint for Sustainable Investing' report, and design customized engagement strategies for each member, taking into account the types of assets under management, and the level of internal infrastructure and support for sustainable investing initiatives. In addition, Ceres and its investor partners will lead webinars, in-person events, and diverse media opportunities to raise awareness of the blueprint's recommendations more broadly.
