We are proud to be recognized by the City of Edina for being a Green Business! Below is from a press release announcing our silver status.
The City of Edina is proud to award Waterfront Financial Group with “Silver” status through the city’s Green Business Recognition Program. “It all starts with taking action,” says Annika Hansen, Operations Manager at Waterfront Financial Group in Edina. “Businesses can proclaim their values all they want, but if no action is taken, it doesn’t matter.” Waterfront specializes in developing comprehensive, long-term investment strategies and retirement income plans for business owners, individuals, families and people in transition.
Last year, Waterfront’s team came together to align on the company’s values and the impact those values should have on how their business operates. “One of the key things we wanted to take action on was sustainability,” Annika shared. “Our financial advisors help clients invest in green funds, among others, but we wanted to make an impact locally with our own operations as well. We began with simple steps to reduce our use of electricity and paper products around the office. Knowing that we’re doing the right thing for the environment is a huge motivator, but as an Operations Manager of a small business, it was really nice for me to see the positive impacts on our bottom line, as well.”
