Chad Lewis '05

Associate, Lincoln International, London

Lewis, a business administration and accounting major, is assisting Lincoln International’s efforts to implement green practices in the investment bank’s London office. Though the company already had in place recycling, reducing the use of air conditioners and turning off lights in unused rooms, its London and Chicago offices have collaborated to implement additional policies. These include pre-setting computers to print double-sided and boosting awareness of recycling. Though Lewis thinks there are still many people who don’t recognize the urgency of climate change—or even that it’s a problem—he believes everyone can take these simple steps to help protect the Earth from further damage. “While vast, this planet is all we have,” he said. “I’d rather take precautions now than face some of the potential [damages].”
