Why work for us

The World Resources Institute (WRI) is an independent, non-governmental global research organization which seeks to create equity and prosperity through sustainable natural resource management. It was established in 1982 with funding from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation under the leadership of James Gustave Speth. WRI is an independent, non-partisan and nonprofit organization with a global staff of more than 450 scientists, economists, policy experts, business analysts, statistical analysts, mapmakers, and communicators developing and promoting policies with the intention of protecting the Earth and improving people’s lives. WRIs activities are focused on six areas: climate, clean energy, food, forests, water, and sustainable cities. In 2014, Stephen M. Ross, an American real estate developer, gave the organization US$30,500,000 to establish WRI Ross Center for Sustainable Cities. The world’s energy systems need a change, they have proved ineffective as well as posing a great threat to the entire population. With an expediated climate change due to human pollution and activity, as well as more than 1.3 billion people still lacking acess to electricity, something needs to be done. While subsidies still continue to support fossil fuel investment, there has been a global shift in more sustainable energy systems. World Resource works with the policymakers of the civil society to transform and change the global energy system. We focus on dramactically reducing greenhouse gas pollution while still providing energy to those in the most poverty-strucken situations.
