Roger Ullman was looking for a way to use his business background to make a difference in the environment, when NRDC program staff recommended he talk to Bob Epstein, E2’s Co-founder. Bob spoke to a small group of individuals about E2 in June 2002 and when he asked for a chapter leader for New York, Roger raised his hand. Although Roger was looking at other organizations, he chose E2 because it provided a unique opportunity to bridge his interest in the environment and his business experience in the private sector as a managing director of investment banking for Merrill Lynch.

As one of three New York chapter leaders, Roger is actively engaged in pulling together E2 speakers and events, and recruiting new E2 members. Since 2002, his efforts have helped E2’s New York chapter grow five-fold and offer interesting events on topics such as corporate environmental strategy and New York’s hydrogen economy. He’s also spearheaded efforts to bring local, state and federal legislators to speak to New York’s E2 members on issues such as reducing our oil dependency and transportation. Roger sits on the E2 Advisory Board’s Long-Term Strategy Committee, which is currently developing a five-year strategic plan. Roger’s involvement extends beyond New York - he’s joined E2’s DC advocacy trip three times, most recently advocating for a federal oil savings legislation to reduce America’s oil consumption by 10 percent by 2016.

Roger’s involvement with E2 has expanded his horizons, enabling him to learn about a wide variety of environmental issues. He also sees E2’s relationship with NRDC as hugely beneficial. "NRDC’s experts have been fantastic about educating me on the public policy process and giving me in-depth insight into specific legislation." Roger is most interested in moving the needle on global warming, seeing it as the single biggest environmental issue.

When not dedicating time and effort to E2, Roger heads up the Linden Trust for Conservation, a non-profit private foundation striving to protect earth’s natural environment by focusing on a select number of significant, innovative programs. The Trust funds both domestic and international projects with a finance and market orientation. He is also involved with the creation of the New Resource Bank , a "green bank" headquartered in San Francisco that opened its doors in 2005.
