A Project of Global Green
The Coalition for Resource Recovery is a project of Global Green USA, a 501(c)3 tax-exempt non-profit organization.
Founded in 1993, Global Green USA is the American Arm of Green Cross International (GCI), which was created by President Mikhail S. Gorbachev to foster a global value shift toward a sustainable and secure future by reconnecting humanity with the environment.
Global Green works to create sustainable urban environments and combat global warming through a unique cross-cutting approach that merges innovative research, technical assistance, cutting-edge community based projects and targeted education and outreach.
The launch of the Coalition for Resource Recovery would not have been possible without the guidance and contributions of the GreenBlue Institute, Council on the Environment of New York City, the Turner Foundation, and the Coalition’s Founder’s Circle Members. GreenBlue donated the use of the Sustainable Packaging Coalition’s membership terms and benefits for use by Global Green’s Coalition for Resource Recovery. The Council on the Environment of New York City provided guidance on the strategic direction of the program. The Turner Foundation and founder’s circle members supported the Coalition’s launch.
The Coalition for Resource Recovery's work is funded by corporate membership dues, the Albert and Elaine Borchard Foundation, the Mertz Gilmore Foundation, the Overbrook Foundation, and the Turner Foundation.
