Helping Businesses/Organizations Make Money Doing What’s Right
Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) is a nonprofit organization that fosters the efficient and restorative use of resources so that companies, governments and organizations are more efficient, make more money, and do less harm to the environment. RMI is engaged in cutting-edge research on oil independence, renewable energy technologies, distributed energy, resource planning, green buildings , and radically efficient transportation.
RMI is a think and do tank. About half our support comes from individual donors and foundation grants, whose tax-deductible donations fund our leading edge research projects and implementation. The other half comes from earned revenue — from consulting for corporations and governments to implement the research findings made possible by our generous donors.
Our innovations have profoundly influenced the energy sector, helped corporations to change how they do business, and informed governments about key enabling policy reforms. RMI areas of expertise include: energy use and supply, buildings & land development, transportation, manufacturing, climate protection, and community economic development.
