Review for Ceres, Boston, MA, USA
Ceres has been a major moving force behind climate change making a transition from being a "non-financial" issue to most company boards to being something they must understand and manage. Getting any new issue into a boardroom is a difficult and time-consuming thing, but Ceres was equal to it, launching the Climate Action 100+, encouraging other shareholder engagement on climate change, publishing The 21st Century Corporation and its ancillary reports, and publishing several reports on integrating climate (and other sustainability issues ) into fiduciary duty and boardroom management. If we do succeed in keeping emissions below the catastrophic path they're on now, Ceres will be long remembered as one of the enablers of that.
