The Third Industrial Revolution (TIR) was formally endorsed by the European Parliament in 2007.

''The Huffington Post'' reported from Beijing in October 2015 that "Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has not only read Jeremy Rifkin's book, ''The Third Industrial Revolution'', but taken it to heart", he and his colleagues having incorporated ideas from this book into the core of the country's thirteenth Five-Year Plan.

Rifkin has taught at the Wharton School executive education program at the University of Pennsylvania since 1995, where he instructs CEOs and senior management on making a transition of their business operations into sustainable economies. Rifkin is ranked number 123 in the ''WorldPost'' / ''The Huffington Post'' 2015 global survey of "The World's Most Influential Voices".
