The nation’s leading policy institute dedicated to smart economics, Redefining Progress develops solutions that help people, protect the environment, and grow the economy. Redefining Progress works with a broad array of partners to shift the economy toward sustainable growth. Our partners include grassroots communities, labor unions, policymakers, academics, and businesses. Our efforts are largely focused on the United States because redefining progress here will have enormous global reverberations.
Redefining Progress is the nation’s leading public policy think tank dedicated to smart economics. We find solutions that ensure a sustainable and equitable world for future generations.
While conventional models for economic growth discount such assets as clean air, safe streets, and cohesive communities, Redefining Progress integrates these assets into a more sustainable economic model. Working with government and advocacy groups, Redefining Progress develops innovative policies that balance economic well-being, environmental preservation, and social justice.
Our policy initiatives address pressing environmental issues such as global climate change and natural resource depletion, while ensuring that both the burdens and the benefits of these policies are shared equally among affected communities. We inject ground-breaking ideas into public dialogue, policy discourse, and decision-making in compelling and nonpartisan ways.
Redefining Progress impacts public policy through:
- Unbiased research: We conduct objective research about how economic policies and business practices impact people’s lives.
- Innovative tools: Our economists develop practical tools to help governments, businesses, and individuals measure their impact on the environment and society.
- Smart solutions: We pioneer and champion forward-looking initiatives to shift public policy toward sustainable economics.
Redefining Progress partners with grassroots organizations, policymakers, businesses, labor unions, and educators to empower people and strengthen communities throughout the United States. We believe that redefining progress locally will have global ramifications.
