Guided by rigorous research and data analysis, we work with partners to implement on the ground projects and mobilize diverse coalitions to put the world on a more sustainable path.
As an independent global research institute, WRI China focuses on “building a human community with sustainable resources, social inclusion, and economic prosperity” through “participating in global governance by providing comprehensive solutions for sustainable development.” Therefore, WRI China has constantly optimized resource and organizational structure to better support China’s sustainable development strategy. During the 14th Five-Year Plan, with up to 60 goals and the Green Belt and Road Initiative, we will strive to bridge China and the world by providing solutions to efficiently shift to a greener, low-carbon future.
As part of our “Count it, Change it, Scale it” approach, we work with partners to mobilize commissions and major global initiatives. These delivery platforms allow us to create large-scale change and lasting impact.
