Triple Pundit: How 3D Design Software Is Creating A More Sustainable World

Triple Pundit: How 3D Design Software Is Creating A More Sustainable World

AutoDesk's social responsibility report details how its products are reducing carbon emissions with computer models.

Triple Pundit

This week Autodesk released its sustainability report for FY 2012. The $2 billion design software firm offers a compelling case of how its products can help build a more sustainable world and mitigate a company’s impact on the planet. The 30 page report also illustrates how a company’s sustainability agenda can be fully integrated within its overall corporate strategy.

Autodesk’s sustainability program includes five pillars: products, carbon emissions, employee engagement, community and partnerships with non-profits. From offering its software free in order to democratize the design process to using its own products to ensure its offices use less energy, Autodesk continues to demonstrate how companies can lead in social responsibility efforts by capitalizing on its greatest strengths.

Some of the highlights in this year’s report include:

Free software licenses: Since 2010, 350,000 people have taken advantage of Autodesk’s Sustainability Workshop, the company’s free online class that teaches sustainability principles in the fields of engineering and design. With a huge part of energy-efficient and less resource-dependent products relying on better design, Autodesk has had a huge role in allowing that basement tinkerer or starving graduate student test their ideas at minimal cost.
