BOSTON — A group of employees from Ceres, a Boston-based sustainability nonprofit organization with global reach and influence, will bike 400 miles from Maine to Massachusetts to raise awareness to the urgent and growing global threat of climate change Sept. 12-16.

This is the fifth year Ceres will participate in the New England Climate Ride. The team will pass through both Camden and Belfast. 

Ceres staffers participating in the Climate Ride include Dan Bakal (Senior Director, Electric Power), Sarah Sachs (Assistant, Company Network), Rebecca Hoffman (Assistant, Climate and Energy), Helen Booth-Tobin (Communications Manager, Policy), Ryan Hollett (Manager, Information Systems), Anna Mokas (Associate, Events and Sponsorship), Emma Conover (Associate, Water) and Jennifer Helfrich (Manager, State Policy). 

In response to the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989, Ceres was founded by a group of forward-looking investors and environmentalists who had a vision for a better way of doing business.

Today, with more than 30 years of leadership and proven results, the organization has successfully built the business case for sustainability, a press release noted. 

Its unique theory of change inspires investors, companies, policymakers and other capital market influencers to take action on climate change and other global sustainability threats including water scarcity and pollution and equitable workplaces.

In the last three decades, the release noted, the organization has made tremendous progress in driving leading investment and corporate sustainability practices and changing capital market systems through its influential networks and advocacy efforts.

As the organization celebrates its 30th anniversary this year, the organization looks forward to further advance its mission of transforming the economy to build a sustainable future.
