Mindy Lubber 2020 Champion of the Earth – Entrepreneurial Vision

What defines Mindy Lubber as an advocate, and what makes her such a fitting winner of the 2020 Champions of the Earth award for Entrepreneurial Vision, is her ability to change not only hearts and minds but also the way money flows around the world.
Mindy Lubber is the CEO and President of Ceres since 2003. Ceres’ mobilizes the most influential investors and companies and makes the business case for climate action and sustainability. In 2015, Lubber helped catalyze the necessary business support to get the historic Paris Agreement across the finish line.

United Nations Environment Programme Executive Director Inger Andersen calls Lubber “a lifetime visionary…who sees the complex intersections between humanity and the world around them not as a challenge but as an opportunity. We are proud to celebrate Mindy Lubber as a 2020 Champion of the Earth, she demonstrates that with careful planning and collaboration, there needs not be a confrontation between environmental sustainability and economic growth.”

The annual Champions of the Earth award is the UN’s highest environmental honour. It recognizes outstanding leaders from government, civil society and the private sector. Mindy Lubber is one of six laureates announced in December 2020, on the cusp of the UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration 2021-2030.

Together, they Act #FORNATURE.
