World Resources Institute is an environmental research and policy organization that creates solutions to protect the Earth and improve people's lives.
Our work is concentrated on achieving progress toward four key goals:
protect Earth's living systems
increase access to information
create sustainable enterprise and opportunity
reverse global warming.
Our strength is our ability to catalyze permanent change through partnerships that implement innovative, incentive-based solutions that are founded upon hard, objective data. We know that harnessing the power of markets will ensure real, not cosmetic, change.
We are an independent and non-partisan organization. Yet, we work closely with governments, the private sector, and civil society groups around the world, because that guarantees ownership of solutions and yields far greater impact that any other way of operating.
