Partnership power: Leslie and Bob Cutler

Leslie and Bob Cutler“EDF partners with really valuable players, and that really makes a difference,” says Leslie Cutler, an avid gardener who lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her husband, Bob.

The Cutlers saw this firsthand when EDF staff sat down with state government, industry and other nonprofits to make Colorado the first state to regulate methane emissions from oil and gas activities directly. The rule was a breakthrough for cleaner air, which the Cutlers cherish during their regular hikes and cycling excursions.

“EDF worked with a variety of stakeholders to get results in our state,” says Bob, who promotes social responsible investment strategies. He was first drawn to EDF because of our work with corporate giants. “EDF is willing to talk to companies that other groups might not approach. That‘s one way they can accomplish so much.”
