Partner

Through powerful networks and advocacy, Ceres tackles the world’s biggest sustainability challenges, including climate change, water scarcity and pollution, and inequitable workplaces.

Ceres was founded in 1989 by a group of forward-looking investors and environmentalists who had a vision for a better way of doing business. Led by Joan Bavaria, they began to re-evaluate the role and responsibility of companies as stewards of the environment and agents of economic and social change.

Today, with more than 30 years of leadership and proven results, Ceres continues to promote business case for sustainability. They believe that just and sustainable global economy benefits both people and the planet. And they firmly believe that investors and companies that integrate sustainability into decision-making outperform their peers.

Ceres’ unique theory of change is to move investors, companies, policymakers and other capital market influencers to take action on four global sustainability challenges: climate change, water scarcity and pollution, inequitable workplaces and outdated capital market systems.

Over the years, Ceres have built influential networks of investors, companies and nonprofit organizations that have grown exponentially in size, scope of work and depth of engagement. Equipping these leaders with science-based research and innovative tools on sustainability risks and opportunities and deploying them, Ceres have created a powerful formula for transforming the global economy.

Climate Investment Funds (CIF)

Partner

CIF was founded in 2008 with the idea that large-scale concessional capital deployed through a partnership of institutions with a track record and knowledge of developing economies could catalyze transformational investments and help create new markets in alignment with our development and climate goals.

It is now a $8.5 billion fund focused on driving climate action through 300+ programs in 72 developing countries. Its business model works through six multilateral development banks (MDBs), to provide financing at scale that is risk-bearing, patient, and below-market-rate to support projects across clean energy, energy access, sustainable transport, climate resilience, and forestry.

Particularly pertinent to the goals of the PPCA is the CIF’s G7-endorsed Accelerating Coal Transition (ACT) investment program – a holistic approach to tackling three critical challenges (governance, people, infrastructure) related to transitioning away from coal and supporting client countries in pursuit of climate-resilient goals.

This vast experience will be deployed to specific workstreams such as strategic cooperation e.g., identifying policy gaps in member countries and assisting in developing policy frameworks that accelerate the clean transition. Other areas where CIF know-how can best serve the alliance include knowledge sharing, country specific capacity building and communications outreach to elevate relevant initiatives.

The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.

The PRI is truly independent.
