The UNEP/GRID-Warsaw Centre, established on 17 September 1991, is a member of the GRID (Global Resource Information Database) network, established by the UN Environment (United Nations Environment Programme – UNEP) to foster sustainable management of natural resources. We are one of the few specialised centres in charge of collecting, processing, and facilitating access to data and information about the natural environment, as well as promoting application of spatial data and GIS (Geographic Information Systems).

Officially registered as an NGO (the branch of the National Foundation for the Environmental Protection in Poland), we cooperate with many national and international partners – local authorities, educational entities and companies implementing CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) politicies.
