About us

The Sustainability Institute was founded in 1996 by
the late Donella (Dana) Meadows to apply systems
thinking and organizational learning to economic,
environmental and social challenges. We focus on
understanding the root causes of unsustainable
behavior in complex systems to help restructure
systems and shift mindsets that will help move
human society toward sustainability.

We work to:
...Shift mindsets – values, attitudes, and beliefs –
when they are out of step with the realities of a
finite planet and a globally powerful human race.

...Restructure systems when the rewards and
incentives of the system are inconsistent with long
term social, environmental, and economic goals.

Build the capability to manage and learn in complex
environmental, social, and economic systems.
