About Us: Programs and Initiatives
Research for People and the Planet: This is what we are about.
The Pacific Institute is unique, both in structure and in operations, with three integrated Programs: Water, Corporate Sustainability, and Community Strategies, and our Initiative in International Water and Communities. Each Program works directly with the others to ensure that the work is truly interdisciplinary and synergistic in addressing environment, equity, and economy. We tackle cutting-edge issues and emphasize alternative, often entrepreneurial solutions, and community-driven knowledge and action, and we avoid ideological solutions by seeking what actually works, rather than solutions driven by narrow pre-determined options.
