Russell J. Furnari is the Manager of Environmental Policy Enterprise for Public Service Enterprise Group (PSEG), a Fortune 500 diversified energy company that has been named to the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for North America for 13 consecutive years. Since 2006, Russ has served as Chairman of the New Jersey Corporate Wetlands Restoration Partnership (NJCWRP), a unique public-private collaborative aimed at restoring, preserving, enhancing, and protecting aquatic habitats throughout New Jersey. Through Russell's strong leadership and commitment, the New Jersey Chapter has experienced phenomenal success and is now considered a model for similar groups across the nation. Membership and annual funds raised to support restoration projects are at an all-time high. One such project is the Upper Wallkill Watershed Riparian Restoration and Floodplain Reforestation Initiative. With the help of 200 students, the first phase resulted in the restoration of 4.5 acres, and the initiative has the potential to restore more than 60 acres by the completion of the entire project.
