Sustainability 

BHGR 2030

At Berg Hill Greenleaf Ruscitti LLP, we have a vested interest in the future of our planet. We looked to our partners, team members, community leaders, and experts in climate change reform and developed and adopted “BHGR 2030.” 

BHGR 2030 encompasses the firm’s short and long-term sustainability initiatives regarding our environment and overall climate protection and reform. These initiatives are overseen and managed by the firm’s Sustainability Committee, led by partners Rudy Verner, Peter Schaub, and Geoffrey Williamson. 

Berg Hill Greenleaf Ruscitti adopted BHGR 2030 in 2022 with rapid movement on the foundational goals to set the stage for the long-term impact.

Community Partners

We’ve looked to our community to help us understand and navigate these waters so that we can continue to create an educated and robust foundation for BHGR 2030. Through these partnerships we strive to become champions for climate change reform and industry leaders in this lifelong initiative.   

Conservation Colorado works throughout the state to protect our air, land, water, and people.

Colorado Water Trust is a home-grown, statewide 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Since 2001, they have restored 16.8 billion gallons of water to 588 miles of rivers and streams across the state. They work collaboratively with their partners so that their projects benefit both the people we work with and our rivers.

BHGR Sustainability Committee

The sustainability committee is made up of no more than seven (7) attorneys who meet regularly to strategize, develop, and promote the sustainability initiatives adopted by the firm. It would be the responsibility of this committee to work with appropriate parties throughout implementation and report back to the management committee and/or partnership on the initiatives and future development opportunities. 

Renewable Resources

Our principal office in Boulder, CO, is now and will continue to be enrolled in Xcel Energy’s Windsource Program. Through retired Renewable Energy Credits, the firm is offsetting our carbon footprint with 100% Colorado wind.
