Paul Hutton can recall three distinct moments that led him down a lifelong path in sustainability: the Earthrise photo, the first Earth Day in 1970, and the 1972 report, The Limits to Growth. As Chief Sustainability Officer of Cuningham Group, Paul has known he wanted to be involved in sustainability since college and has lived on a sustainable 800-acre ranch for 20 years with the intention of bringing it back to its natural state.

Paul explains that he is “always engaged in the notion of healing nature” and that this shows up in every aspect of his life.
