Earth Policy Institute

Le Earth Policy Institute (EPI) est une organisation environnementale américaine basée à Washington DC. Elle a été fondée en 2001 par Lester R. Brown.


Le but du Earth Policy Institute est d'alerter l'opinion publique sur les problèmes de la croissance démographique, du réchauffement climatique, des menaces qui pèsent sur la biodiversité végétale et animale.

L'organisation montre la voie vers une nouvelle économie mondiale durable, une éco-économie basée sur :

  • la transition énergétique vers des énergies renouvelables ;
  • le développement des modes de transport non polluants ;
  • la sortie de l'économie du jetable, par une généralisation du recyclage.
