Mission Statement

The Coalition's vision is to eliminate the concept of waste so that the waste from one activity is food for another, benefitting the economy, people, and the environment. Closing the loop on materials reduces resource loss, energy consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions which cause climate change.

Description

The Coalition for Resource Recovery is a project of Global Green USA, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization.

Founded in 1993, Global Green USA is the American Arm of Green Cross International (GCI), which was created by President Mikhail S. Gorbachev to foster a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future by reconnecting humanity with the environment.

Global Green works to create sustainable urban environments and combat global warming through a unique cross-cutting approach that merges innovative research, technical assistance, cutting-edge community based projects and targeted education and outreach.

The launch of the Coalition for Resource Recovery would not have been possible without the guidance and contributions of the GreenBlue Institute, Council on the Environment of New York City, the Turner Foundation, and the Coalition's Founder's Circle Members. GreenBlue donated the use of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition's membership terms and benefits for use by Global Green's Coalition for Resource Recovery. The Council on the Environment of New York City provided guidance on the strategic direction of the program. The Turner Foundation and founder's circle members supported the Coalition's launch.
