Rocky Mountain Institute is a pioneer in the field of sustainability consulting. For over a quarter century they have championed the efficient and restorative use of natural resources through high-profile consulting engagements and numerous publications. After 25 years of thought leadership, RMI recognized that competition was rapidly intensifying and engaged a team from the Institute of Design to develop strategic solutions to help RMI remain a leader in the nascent field of sustainability consulting. The project demonstrated: understanding stakeholder perspectives; reframing the issue; analyzing vast research and information; systematizing strategic solutions.
