RMI30: Celebrating Solutions

RMI30 LogoLit green against the New York skyline, the Empire State Building was a fabulous setting for RMI30 this May, where friends, supporters and special guests gathered with RMI staff to reflect on thirty years of solutions.

We would like to especially thank Anna Deavere Smith for her insightful introduction to the evening, where she likened U.S dependency on oil to that of slavery in pre-abolition U.S. 

Empire State BuildingA special thanks as well to Frank Sesno and Tony Malkin for their conversation with Amory Lovins about the transformational changes driven by RMI, including the deep retrofit of the Empire State Building. The program offered an opportunity to reflect on our dedicated work and to illustrate the goals we have yet to accomplish—-most notably to move the U.S. off oil and coal, and use a third less natural gas, by 2050.

Finally, we would like to thank our guests, hosts, and sponsors for celebrating this milestone and making it a success! We are grateful for the support that makes our work achievable so we can continue creating a world that is thriving, verdant, and secure, for all, for ever.
