Karabell’s Earth Day Trade: AutoDesk

Thursday, 22 Apr 2010 | 5:55 PM ET

This Thursday marked the 40th anniversary of Earth Day, which made environmental protection a national issue.

As you may know NBC Universal is committed to the green movement. Our company always strives to bring an environmental perspective to everything we do.

And in that spirit, Fast Money contributor Zach Karabell has an Earth Day play for you! He suggests taking a closer look at Autodesk .

If you think AutoDesk is only a green trade because it was involved in making the conservation-themed film Avatar, we’ve got news for you!

AutoDesk is partnering with Denmark-based Vindby to design the first wind turbine for home use.

Also their Auto-Cad software, widely used by architects and engineers, is embedding tools for energy efficiency in their modeling.

"They're really pushing ahead believing that sustainability and energy efficiency is going to be their next market," says Karabell, "particularly in the emerging world."
