Founded in 2001, Angeles is a 100% employee owned, multi-asset investment firm, building customized portfolios for institutional and private wealth investors. Proud to be recognized for putting people and planet right up there with profit, they are Certified B Corporation* with four US locations in Santa Monica, New York, Chicago and Houston.
To support Santa Monica’s Climate Action & Adaptation Plan, Angeles Investments has a goal to continuously evaluate and reduce their carbon emissions related to:
- Efficient use of energy, water, and other resources
- Waste reduction measures such as re-using, recycling, and composting
- Reduce pollution with use of non-toxic, ethical, and sustainable materials
- Consideration of the environment in design, construction, and operation
To minimize waste, Angeles Investments Santa Monica supplies sparkling and still water dispensers to avoid the continuous purchase of plastic bottles. The employee kitchen is stocked with reusable food ware. Striving to be a paperless operation, all forms and documents are processed and stored electronically. To support the recycled paper industry and recycling, Angeles purchases unbleached paper products such as multi-fold and kitchen towel rolls made by Seventh Generation.
To prevent pollution, Angeles phased in non-toxic and green-certified cleaners and asked the property manager to educate janitorial staff on preferences for Green Seal, EPA Safer Choice, and EcoLogo certified products.
Angeles is committed to promoting the annual National Bike to Work Day in May, as well as their sustainable transportation incentive policy by offering one extra vacation hour each day an employee commutes to work by bike, walk, or public transportation.
