Why Sustainable Business
Working with companies is essential to our mission because they can innovate and scale solutions to our toughest challenges. Businesses have important influence on governments and their extensive, global value chains complement the reach of governments bound by national borders. Companies inform WRI’s priorities and help kickstart innovative projects.
How We Support Sustainable Business
WRI's research helps integrate environmental sustainability and business strategy. Our practical guidance, tools and initiatives help companies assess and reduce impacts along their entire value chains. Here are some popular ways in which WRI helps companies improve their sustainability performance:
- Aqueduct helps companies be responsible stewards of freshwater
- Global Forest Watch helps companies reduce deforestation impacts in their supply chains
- The Greenhouse Gas Protocol is the world’s most trusted methodology for measuring corporate emissions
- The Science Based Targets initiative helps companies align their carbon reduction targets with international climate goals
- The Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) helps companies use their purchasing power to increase availability of renewable energy
