Since our founding in 2001, CI’s Center for Environmental Leadership in Business (CELB) has partnered with corporate and environmental leaders to create innovative solutions that improve business performance by helping to sustain healthy ecosystems. By engaging in mutually beneficial partnerships with influential corporations that drive the widespread adoption of good practices, we have the opportunity to transform global markets and industry standards toward the realization of CI’s mission.
CELB offers a wide range of products and services to our corporate partners to improve their business practices, creating and implementing strategies that combine bold commitments to sustainability with practical solutions that deliver benefits to the bottom line and the environment, as well as investing in conservation initiatives, supporting field-level conservation and ensuring economic benefits to local communities.

Forest Carbon Markets: Advancing corporate leadership, policy and standards development to build robust markets for REDD+
Responsible Mining & Energy: Leveraging extractive industry practices and resources to achieve significant net positive impacts for healthy ecosystems and human well-being
Sustainable Food & Agriculture Markets: Making business a positive force for global food security and sustainable agriculture
