At Cambiar Investors, we believe that an awareness of our own surroundings and consciousness of the impact that our business culture and staff have go hand-in-hand with the overlay of our Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) initiative onto our relative value investment process.
We believe that being a responsible company and working to a standard that benefits our clients, is a critical tenet to the long-term success of our business and the greater overall good.
In relocating our office to a new state of the art complex in Denver’s Cherry Creek North neighborhood, we made an effort to reduce the amount of waste associated with our move.
Existing office furniture, computers, office supplies, etc., were donated to various non-profit organizations around Denver, including Young American’s Bank, Habitat for Humanity, and OpenWorld Learning.
From there, Cambiar worked closely with a local furniture maker to develop new office desks and tables utilizing refurbished materials, sourced from airplanes, train cars, bowling alleys, and salvage yards.
The furniture in our office has a unique past. We find great value in something that has a history and utilizing it to help shape our future.
Greater Impact with Less Plastic
We have eliminated plastic water bottles throughout the Cambiar facility with water stations set up throughout. Other beverages in our office come in glass bottles or aluminum cans.
