Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI)
Rocky Mountain Institute (RMI) is an entrepreneurial nonprofit organization. We work with businesses, governments, and communities to create true wealth while simultaneously protecting the earth through the productive and efficient use of resources. It's a concept we call "natural capitalism" and it's a new way of doing business that's alluringly profitable. RMI asks the right questions, questions that lead to breakthrough answers. We identify the often unnoticed yet highly important synergies among functions. By understanding the whole system, not just the parts, we can uncover connections between problems and design solutions that can be leveraged across boundaries. This approach allows us to "tunnel through the cost barrier."
RMI does more than develop tailored solutions, we apply them. Our Research & Consulting Teams show others how to incorporate our findings on energy and resource efficiency into their business operations. The end result means unprecedented competitive for a firm and a sustainable future for the world.
What distinguishes RMI from competitors is the Institute's visionary innovation, creativity, and inspiration, coupled with the technical and economic depth to be practical and profitable. Our consulting work ranges from strategic to technical and from the boardroom to the shop floor.
