In 1989, a major environmental disaster shook public confidence in corporate America—the Exxon-Valdez oil spill. 10.8 million gallons of oil poured into Alaskas Prince William Sound, devastating one of the world's most pristine habitats. Suddenly, the environmental cost of doing business became painfully clear and it was apparent that companies werent doing enough to account for the environmental and social impacts of their operations. Just 6 months after the spill, a group of investors launched an organization to tackle this problem: a small nonprofit called Ceres.
On February 14, 2008, investors representing over $22 trillion joined Ceres and the United Nations Foundation to discuss the risks and opportunities posed by climate change.
