About WRI _

The World Resources Institute (WRI) is an independent, nonprofit global research organization that turns big ideas into action at the connection between environment, economic opportunity and human well-being. We are working to address seven critical challenges that the world must overcome this decade to ensure a sustainable future for people and the planet: climate change, energy, food, forests, water, sustainable cities and the ocean.

We are in love. We value our diversity of interests, skills and experiences. We have a flexible work environment. And we share a common goal of catalyzing change that will improve people’s lives. Our shared ideals are at the heart of our approach. They include: integrity, innovation, urgency, independence and respect.

The foundation of our work is to provide high-quality research, data, maps and analysis to solve the world’s biggest environmental and international development challenges and improve people’s lives. We work with leaders in government, business and civil society to drive ambitious action and create local change. Equally important, we bring together partners to develop innovative ideas and scale-up solutions for lasting, far-reaching impact.

We have been growing rapidly: our team has doubled in size in the last 5 years and our operating budget is $150 million. Founded in 1982, WRI has a global team of more than 1,000 people, working in 60 countries. We have offices in Africa, Brazil, China, Europe, India, Indonesia, Mexico and the United States, as well as a growing presence in other countries and regions.

WRI is committed to promoting gender and social equality for human well-being in our mission and applies this principle to our organizational and programmatic practices.

The World Resources Institute ( ) is an environmental and development research and policy organization that creates solutions to protect the Earth and improve people’s lives. As an Equal Opportunity Employer, it is WRI’s policy to recruit, hire, and provide opportunities for advancement in all job classifications without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, citizenship, marital status, sexual orientation, identity gender, parental status, protected veteran status, or disability. WRI’s global agenda requires a diverse team – with respect to race, gender, culture and international background. Diverse perspectives and experiences enhance the way WRI selects and addresses issues, as well as the creativity and applicability of WRI research and policy analysis. WRI therefore encourages applications from U.S. minorities, people from other countries (especially developing nations), and women of all backgrounds.
