About International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)
The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) harnesses the best minds to find ways to achieve sustainable development through policy research, expert networks and timely communications. We work globally and engage with decision-makers in all sectors to develop and implement policies that simultaneously benefit the global economy, the global environment and social well-being.
We have created an innovation culture, which puts us out in front of key emerging policy issues well before they – and their impact – are properly understood. We bridge the best in policy research worldwide with the needs of policy-makers and marshal information on global efforts to advance on key sustainable development issues by building networks of experts unparalleled anywhere.
We are motivated by the pursuit of change, inspired by our own history of making a difference, and know that the most innovative ideas eventually become mainstream practice.
