Ceres Aqua Gauge: Advancing Investor and Corporate Action on Water Stewardship
Grant Amount: $50,000, on 5/2/2012
Ceres is an advocate for sustainability leadership. It mobilizes a powerful network of investors, companies, and public interest groups to accelerate the adoption of sustainable business practices to build a healthy global economy. Ceres seeks to steer capital away from investments in companies that are poorly managing resources and risk and toward companies that are making steps toward credible climate and water stewardship strategies. A grant to Ceres in 2012 will support its work to make the ways in which companies use water, what UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon recently called the world�s �most critical finite resource,� a basic part of any analysis of corporate viability and likely market success over time.
