Yesterday Autodesk launched our new online Autodesk Sustainable Design Center.
The Sustainable Design Center provides a one-stop shop for customers, employees, channel partners, press, analysts and other stakeholders to find the most current and up-to-date news about Autodesk’s sustainability performance and accomplishments. The new Autodesk Sustainable Design Center is our primary communication and reporting vehicle and as such, eliminates the need for a stand-alone annual sustainability report. The new Autodesk Sustainable Design Center highlights ten of the most pressing sustainability issues faced by Autodesk customers, including:
- Clean Tech Development
- High Performance Buildings
- Teaching Sustainable Design
- Green Manufacturing
- Green Government
- Sustainable Urban Development and Design
- Green Consumer Products
- Smart Utilities
- Better Roads and Transportation
- Green Vehicles
In addition to this, the Sustainable Materials Assistant has been a technology preview on Autodesk Labs for some time.
The Sustainable Materials Assistant allows you to update your Inventor schema so you can associate materials with your designs. This association is then used to provide an analysis of the carbon footprint of your design. You can check this out as well.
You should visit the new Autodesk Sustainable Design Center, and check back often to stay tuned to Autodesk’s sustainability story.
Promoting sustainability is alive in the lab.
