David Smith has a mission to use business as a catalyst for environmental and social progress. He discovered a love for the outdoors and connection to nature while growing up in Cincinnati, Ohio. During a study abroad program in Costa Rica, he realized the most powerful way to advocate for environmental stewardship is by making it profitable. David attended the University of Michigan, where he majored in Business Administration and minored in Sustainability. Afterwards, he implemented energy efficiency measures at Amazon.com and helped businesses and homeowners install solar panels in the Midwest. He is currently pursuing an MBA at the University of Colorado, Boulder, where he is concentrating in Sustainability and Entrepreneurship. In his free time, he enjoys skiing, backpacking, and almost anything outdoors. He is excited to join the Natural Capitalism Solutions team and take the next step on his journey to leverage the power of business to help our communities and planet.
