NAPLES, FL. May 29 – Andrew Hill Investment Advisors Inc., a Naples-based investment and wealth management advisory firm, has earned certification from the City of Naples as a Green Business. The firm is one of 25 inaugural businesses to achieve this recognition through the City’s grant-funded Green Business Certification Program.
Founded in January 2010, Andrew Hill Investment Advisors focuses on socially and environmentally responsible investing. This Green Business Certification from the City of Naples confirms that partners Andrew Hill and Jennifer Figurelli are also committed to operating their company’s facility with as little environmental impact as possible.
The firm’s achievements include using electricity per square foot at less than half the average of comparable properties in the region by reducing after-hours usage and lighting. The firm also recycles all paper and plastic items and utilizes environmentally friendly promotional materials, including pens made from recycled materials. In addition, the firm achieved a 30 percent fuel savings by replacing an engine on the company’s flat boat used for client trips and Hill recently purchased a hybrid vehicle for business uses.
The City of Naples’ Green Business Certification Program, implemented by the firm Twentyfifty, LLC, for the City’s Natural Resources Department, helps local businesses optimize environmentally friendly operations. Funded by a grant from the Department of Energy, the pilot phase has recognized sustainable actions throughout the Naples area.
The inaugural 25 certified green businesses will be recognized with a proclamation by Mayor John F. Sorey III during the Naples City Council meeting on Wednesday, June 5.
