Policy

Ceres is the leading organizer of investor and company support for climate and clean energy policies in the U.S. By making the economic case for action, Ceres advances business leadership in support of innovative policies that will help accelerate the low-carbon future. 

Through the Ceres Policy Network known as Ceres Business for Innovative Climate and Energy Policy (BICEP), we work with more than 50 companies to take stronger action on climate and advocate for low-carbon policies in the electric power, transportation, and other energy-intensive sectors at the state and federal level. The Ceres BICEP Network supports policy solutions that will increase American competitiveness, create jobs and provide a framework that gives companies certainty as they invest in low-carbon solutions.

We also bring investors along with us. Members of the Ceres Investor Network on Climate Risk and Sustainability participate in congressional briefings and meetings on Capitol Hill and in statehouses across the country to press lawmakers on policies that will help them make better long-term investment decisions to support a low-carbon economy.
