Dix & Eaton has worked with several organizations to develop the offshore wind industry around Lake Erie.

Because we are a people-centric business, our environmental footprint is not extensive. However, we recognize that everyone has a role to play in protecting the environment, so we take steps to minimize our footprint wherever possible, in addition to helping our clients do the same:

  • Since much of our client work involves document creation, we recommend FSC-certified paper and, where appropriate, minimizing or eliminating print runs by online publishing of PDFs and microsites
  • Our offices are located in an ENERGY STAR building in close proximity to major access routes for public transportation
  • Where possible, we reuse building materials such as glass and office furniture

Office Practices

Additional features that underscore our commitment to environmental responsibility include:

  • Recycling bins in every office and in the kitchen
  • Dimmers/motion-sensor lights in many conference rooms
  • Audio and videoconferencing tools to minimize travel
  • Encouraging colleagues to print two-sided documents

Group Involvement

We are proud to be affiliated with several sustainability-focused organizations, including the Corporate Roundtable/Corporate Sustainability Network and Sustainable Cleveland 2019

Energy and Natural Resources Client Base

Dix & Eaton has been serving energy and natural resources clients for many years, and our Energy and Natural Resources practice is specifically focused on meeting the increased demand for specialized communications expertise within this sector. We work with organizations across the spectrum, including:

  • Raw materials suppliers
  • Utilities and other energy providers
  • Energy product manufacturers
  • Energy service providers and advisers
  • Owners/operators of traditional and renewable energy facilities
  • Non-profit organizations

In renewable energy in particular, we have worked with organizations such as Great Lakes Wind Network (GLWN) and Lake Erie Energy Development Corporation (LEEDCo) in helping them build an offshore wind industry around Lake Erie. GLWN is working to build the wind industry supply chain, and LEEDCo is developing an 18-MW pilot project known as Icebreaker located approximately seven miles off the shore of downtown Cleveland.
