The Environmental Difference Smart Cars Actually Make

Smart Design, Smart Car

Smart cars are designed with an aim of minimizing their impact on the ecological balance. The designers also work hard to improve all the components using an economic perspective where they utilize recycled and sustainable materials. The engineers also look focus on the ability to disassemble the cars, which allows individual parts to be replaced where necessary. This allows the discarded parts to be recycled making the car more than 95 percent recyclable.

Garvin Jabusch's picture

Garvin is the Chief Investment Officer for Green Alpha Advisors, where he leads investment research; conducts macroeconomic, scientific, and technological analysis; and develops and communicates the Next Economy investment approach.

Prior to co-founding Green Alpha with Jeremy Deems in 2007, Garvin had realized that traditional investment methods constrained the opportunity to have impact and achieve long-term competitive returns. How could he invest in the leaders of tomorrow’s sustainable economy if they were limited to an index of the carbon economy’s winners? Together with Jeremy, Garvin decided to throw out the rule book, found Green Alpha, and begin investing in the Next Economy—a method that aims to invest only in innovative solutions to system-level risks like climate change, never in their causes.

Garvin previously worked at Forward Management, LLC where he managed the Sierra Club Stock Fund and the Sierra Club Equity Income Fund.

Before Forward Management, Garvin served at Morgan Stanley as well as initiatives in research and analysis, trading, and mutual fund sales.

Earlier, Garvin studied in the Ph.D. program in physical anthropology and archaeology for five years at the University of Utah. Garvin was a field Director for the American Expedition to Petra, Jordan for two excavation seasons, and served as archaeologist and crew chief at many sites in the American West. Other jobs held by Garvin have included EMT and whitewater rafting guide.

Garvin holds an MBA in international management and finance from the American Graduate School of International Management (Thunderbird). His mix of business and science-intensive backgrounds brings knowledge of long-term systemic risk and societal collapse to portfolio management.
