The Autodesk vision is to help people imagine, design, and create a better world. Notice the word "help" is in there. We don't actually do the work. We provide solutions that enable others make the world better. Though there are many opinions as to what "better" means, most can agree that a sustainable world is better than an unsustainable world. In other words, the world is better if everyone can thrive within the limits of the earth.
When we think of helping, we define people as anyone who intentionally shapes our world. Whether you are an engineer or educator, an entrepreneur, designer, or maker, you have a place in the design-led revolution. This revolution is driven by new ways to work, create, and respond to today’s most pressing challenges. Autodesk offers tools, insights, and resources to help all designers create more sustainable designs for a better world.
