A dynamic and flexible organization with a global vision and a local focus, TERI was established in 1974, with initial focus on documentation and information dissemination. Research activities, initiated towards the end of 1982, were rooted in TERI’s firm conviction that efficient utilization of energy and sustainable use of natural resources would propel the process of development.
All activities in TERI, the largest developing-country institution working towards sustainability, move from formulating local and national-level strategies to shaping global solutions to critical issues.
Buoyed by more than 43 years of excellence in research and innovation, TERI is now poised for future growth, driven by a global vision and outreach, with a philosophy that assigns primacy to enterprise in government, industry, and individual actions.
