Institute for Sustainable Communities
ISC's mission is to help communities around the world address environmental, economic, and social challenges to build a better future shaped and shared by all. Since our founding in 1991 by former U.S. Ambassador and Vermont Governor Madeleine M. Kunin, ISC has led 91 sustainable community-driven projects in 25 countries across the globe.
We started working in China in 2007, and have offices in Guangzhou, Beijing and Shanghai. We work with local partners, including governments, private sector, academies and NPOs to address the challenges of environmental protection, reducing carbon emissions, and creating low-carbon developments mainly in Pearl River Delta and Yangzi River Delta. Currently our projects cover the areas of green supply chain (EHS), low-carbon urbanization, sustainable education, and environmental NPO capacity building. We believe in partnership, capacity building, public participation and practical solutions.
