The Road to 2020 - A Ceres and Sustainalytics Collaboration


The Road to 2020 - A Sustainalytics/Ceres Joint ReportSustainalytics and Ceres have partnered to produce The Road to 2020: Corporate Progress on the Ceres Roadmap for Sustainability, an assessment of U.S. businesses’ progress on key sustainability metrics. In 2010 The 21st Century Corporation: The Ceres Roadmap for Sustainability challenged companies to make sustainability a part of their corporate DNA. This year’s report evaluates 600 of the largest publicly traded U.S. companies on their governance, stakeholder engagement, disclosure and performance on leading social and environmental issues.

As the foundation for this research, Sustainalytics' Global Platform tracks each of the companies in the report leveraging its high quality analysis and analyst expertise. Sustainalytics' proprietary research  methodology has been customized to align with the key expectations outlined in Ceres' Roadmap for Sustainability.

The Road to 2020 allows companies to assess their progress relative to their peers and to emulate leading practices in sustainability management and performance. The data featured on the interactive website represents a tool for companies to accelerate their efforts towards meeting Ceres' Roadmap expectations by 2020. The key findings and case studies highlighted in this report will also support investor efforts in company engagement and ESG integration.
