The Delta Institute is a non-profit organization dedicated to leading the transformation to the green economy. Founded in 1998, Delta creates, funds and implements programs that integrate environmental, economic and community health issues to develop a green economy. Delta provides technical assistance, research capacity and consulting services in a variety of green economy impact areas, including green buildings, carbon credits, brownfields, green purchasing, sustainable manufacturing, green collar jobs, urban food systems and solid waste. We work with private, public, institutional and non-profit partners to plan, fund and implement sustainable and green economic initiatives. The Delta Institute has the knowledge and expertise required to provide research, writing, technical support, communications and facilitation activities for this proposed scope of work.
