Ceres Global: Standing up for Sustainable Investing

Featured Speakers

[Moderator] Justin Worland, Senior Correspondent, TIME Magazine

Colleen Davis, Delaware State Treasurer

Brad Lander, New York City Comptroller

Eli Lehrer, President, R Street Institute


There is a growing political backlash in the U.S. taking aim at institutional investors and companies that consider the material and financial impacts of climate change in decision-making. It is costing taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars, exposing retirement beneficiaries to unnecessary risk, placing burdens on financial institutions, and creating market chaos.  Investors and companies have long prioritized sustainable investment and business practices to ensure profitability and financial stability – not to satisfy a political agenda. Many are part of a growing movement of leaders refocusing the narrative to further advance sustainable investing and corporate climate action and the implementation of the Inflation Reduction Act, the largest federal investment in climate.  

During this Town Hall, participants will:  

  • Examine the actions of investors and companies to address the financial impacts of climate change  
  • Evaluate how the policies restricting sustainable investment is costing taxpayers, business, and the economy  
  • Explore ways to join a larger effort to refocus the national dialogue and advance climate action and policies
