As businesses and nonprofit organizations in Indiana and the Midwest grapple with how to reduce their environmental impact, the Environmental Resilience Institute is providing the tools, training, and expertise to help them make progress.
A climate of collaboration
The McKinney Midwest Climate Project is dedicated to accelerating the transition to sustainable and climate-friendly practices in Indiana and the Midwest. Through partnerships with communities, businesses, and nonprofits, the project is accelerating the adoption of climate solutions and training the next generation of climate leaders.
Convening Midwest climate leaders
The Indiana Sustainability and Resilience Conference (ISRC) connects businesses and nonprofits to the knowledge, tools, and resources that can accelerate climate action and resilience efforts in Indiana.
The conference brings together sustainability professionals, scholars, and climate advocates from across the state to enhance cross-sector collaboration, share best practices, and strengthen Indiana's climate and resilience network.
Facilitating public-private partnerships for climate resilience
In February 2022, ERI convened a workshop featuring IU faculty, US Environmental Protection Agency staff, and Indiana local government and business leaders to better understand and advance public-private partnerships for climate action. Participants provided critical feedback on questions related to resources, information, and tools for collaborative climate planning among local governments and businesses.
