Green Source was founded in 2007 by opinion leaders in chemical engineering, oil and gas, and technology development with decades of operational, finance and R&D experience.
Headquartered in Austin, Texas, we have operations in Texas, Louisiana and Pennsylvania.
Green Source seeks business opportunities that use technology to solve resource efficiency issues.
Key elements of our businesses include:
We seek to promote sustainable commerce, which we define as businesses that use an original resource in multiple, value-added reincarnations (or upcycling) with compelling inherent economic value. We focus on materials recycling and heavy industry, because these industries are underserved in the investment community, so many great ideas are going undeveloped.
We build businesses that are IP heavy and can use that as a competitive edge. Our experience with IP enables us to develop sophisticated strategies to protect business opportunities through comprehensive strategies.
Value for Stakeholders
Our businesses provide value for all stakeholders without relying on government subsidies or mandates. Our philosophy is that, to be truly sustainable, business opportunities must offer inherent value for customers, employees, investors and other stakeholders.
