Stories of Hope, Applied

Since starting out as a tiny team in a small town high up in the Colorado Rockies, RMI has succeeded by blending a unique mix of optimism for solutions with a rigor around how to deploy them.

This approach, which Amory Lovins calls “Applied Hope,” has for decades delivered progress on countless fronts, from improving markets and advancing policy, to scaling projects that have lifted the well-being of real people around the world.

As climate change accelerates, even greater challenges remain. With our staff, partners, and communities, RMI is racing ahead to scale solutions. Here, we document some of our most hope-inspiring stories and successes from around the world.
