Ceres Global is our flagship event where many of the most influential capital market leaders come together to set the course of action for a more just and sustainable economy by 2030.
The three-day event brought together influential institutional investors, C-suite executives, national policymakers, and thought leaders to highlight the innovative solutions and leading global initiatives paving the way for a more just and sustainable economy. More than ever before, leaders are acting on our global threats, showing the world just how saving the planet and the economy can be done in the next seven years. They are seizing the opportunities that come with the economic transition, despite a growing and misleading political backlash.
During keynote sessions, Ceres Global refocused the national dialogue to where it should be as the shift to the clean economy gains more speed—advancing sustainable investing and greater corporate ambition and fully implementing the Inflation Reduction Act, the most ambitious federal investment in climate ever, so that we head off the next climate catastrophe.
