WRI's Sustainability Data
At WRI, we work hard to put ideas into action. Our work leads to many positive outcomes, but like most human activity, it comes with environmental costs. The electricity we use, the flights we take and the decisions we make on how to run WRI have an impact on society and the environment. To minimize negative impacts, WRI strives to “walk the talk” by integrating sustainability principles into how we operate.
WRI’s Sustainability Initiative was created to align the Institute’s operations with its mission. Using research and expertise from staff to guide us, we are committed to improving WRI’s environmental performance. A key part of this commitment is measuring and reporting the climate-warming emissions that we produce according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol. By doing so, we are able to better manage and reduce our environmental impact.
