Since CI was established in 1987, we have worked collaboratively with business—from small-scale farmer co-ops to the world’s largest corporations. CI created the Center for Environmental Leadership in Business (CELB) in 2000 to work with companies to minimize environmental impacts and to harness private sector ingenuity on behalf of healthy ecosystems and human well-being.

CELB focuses its efforts on industries with the greatest impact on ecosystems: food & agriculture, oil & gas, mining, retail & consumer products and the financial services sector. The success of CI’s new mission and strategic direction—safeguarding nature for the well-being of people everywhere—will depend in part on mobilizing private sector ingenuity and resources to create healthy, sustainable economies.
