Ceres Shareholder Initiative on Climate & Sustainability

Ceres Shareholder Initiative on Climate & Sustainability

The Ceres’ Shareholder Initiative on Climate and Sustainability (SICS) coordinates the efforts of investors seeking to engage investee companies on climate, clean energy and related sustainability risk and opportunity issues. SICS’ resolutions and company dialogues helped to produce over 100 corporate commitments in 2014 and 2015 to address critical risks related to climate change including reducing greenhouse gas emissions, limiting fossil fuel industry risks, and protecting forests. A majority (73%), though not all of these commitments, have been fully implemented by the relevant companies. In a new analysis, 34 investors reported on how their engagements are creating tangible results, describing 31 commitments on sustainability reporting, 28 commitments on greenhouse gas reductions, 18 commitments on sustainable agriculture and deforestation, 15 commitments on carbon risks to the fossil fuel industry, and 9 commitments on other topics, including corporate governance, water management and political involvement.
