Martha’s passion for ecological and social regeneration through market-based mechanisms led her to RMI. Martha joined RMI in July 2013 and has actively participated in the development of RMI’s new Communities Practice. She was intimately involved in developing the practice’s internal strategy while simultaneously working with the City of Fort Collins on its various efforts to accelerate its green house gas emissions reduction goals. She is also part of the team supporting the City of Chicago in becoming a break away leader in building energy efficiency. Martha continues to focus on sustainable finance as it relates to the new business models necessary for program implementation of such community efforts.
