Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) is a unique entrepreneurial nonprofit that fosters the efficient and restorative use of resources to create a more secure, prosperous, and life-sustaining world. RMIís staff shows businesses, communities, individuals, and governments how to meet the challenges they face in ways that create more wealth and protect the environment simultaneouslyó often by providing the same services far more efficiently.
RMI brings a new perspective to resource issues. Its defining features are an emphasis on market-oriented solutions; a trans-ideological, non-adversarial approach; and a knack for seeing the big picture and finding profitable interconnections between issues that seem unrelated. Much of RMIís work is with corporations, which the Institute believes have the unique combination of skills, resources, and motivation necessary to solve the problems facing humanity today.
