The Nicholas Institute for Environmental Policy Solutions at Duke University is a nonpartisan institute founded in 2005 to help decision makers in business, industry, government, and the nonprofit sector understand their options, anticipate their choices, and make the most of opportunities for leadership in creating a more economically and environmentally sustainable future. The Institute is led by a small team of economists, scientists, and policy experts who leverage the broad expertise of their faculty colleagues in arts and sciences, business, engineering, environment, divinity, law, and public policy to help Duke deliver on its commitment to put knowledge in the service of society in the domain of energy, environment, and sustainability. The Institute acts as an honest broker by convening and fostering open, ongoing, and often off-the-record dialogue among stakeholders from all sides of an issue; develops and delivers timely, relevant, and sophisticated data modeling and analysis; and provides decision makers with unbiased evaluations of policy risks and rewards, and helps them develop innovative, practical solutions to complex challenges. The Institute's mission is to help decision makers create timely, effective, and economically practical solutions to the world's critical environmental challenges.
