Business is the engine that drives global economic growth. What if companies were also conservation champions — taking bold, practical actions that benefit people, the planet and the bottom line?


“Business as usual” is unsustainable. Given the pace of human consumption, the impacts of climate change and a growing population, we will need two Earths to meet humanity’s demands by 2030.


But we only have one.


That’s why Conservation International is working to change the way the world does business. CI has actively engaged with companies that have​​​ the biggest impacts for more than 20 years to help them become better stewards of the environment — and to show them that protecting the planet can have a positive impact on their bottom lines. In doing so, we’re preserving the benefits, like fresh air and clean water, that all of us receive from nature.

Our role

CI created the Center for Environmental Leadership in Business in 2001 to help companies minimize their environmental impacts. We have worked collaboratively with businesses of nearly every size, from small-scale farming co-ops to the world’s largest corporations. (Learn more about the companies we work with and the results we are achieving together.)

Today, more and more companies are embracing sustainability. CI continues to work with them to help them meet growing global demands for food, water and energy in ways that result in positive benefits for both people and the planet.
