3dexperience platform for sustainability

The Platform for Sustainability Teams

All aspects of your business on a single platform to imagine sustainable innovations

One Platform, Endless Possibilities

Imagine a virtual space where your team of industrial designers and engineers and its ecosystem collaborate seamlessly to bring sustainable innovations to life. That’s what the 3DEXPERIENCE platform offers: A unified environment where the entire value network imagines and creates more climate-neutral products, materials, services and supply chains processes.  


Leveraging the 3DEXPERIENCE platform’s lifecycle assessment and eco-design methods, your team can reduce the environmental footprint at every stage of the product lifecycle. Let engineers, designers and contributors effortlessly imagine, define and shape innovations virtually before committing to the best solutions that balance performance and sustainability.

Explore Some of the Sustainability Use Cases

Low-carbon Design

Approach product design with sustainability in mind to align with regulations, while creating value for customers and society. Lessen environmental impacts by incorporating sustainability early in the product design stage. Create low-carbon innovations that enhance human, social, and environmental well-being. Use the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to gain insights into material use to and identify potential carbon savings. 

Circular Economy Initiatives for Waste Reduction

Circular economy means rethinking how your organization operates within their environment and ecosystem. It requires optimizing waste reduction by applying eco-design and product reusability principles to create more durable products. It means striving to eliminate waste from your operations, from minimizing power use and chemical products. It also means integrating disassembly considerations into a product's design stage to support its reuse.

Sustainable Production

Sustainable production is about doing more and better with less resources. It requires to adapt manufacturing and distribution processes by reducing energy consumption, water and waste, decarbonizing its supply chains. It's about reimagining products made of more sustainable materials. It means staying ahead of changing regulations, fulfilling the sustainability-focused desires of consumers, and moving towards realizing your zero carbon goals.

Cleaner Energy Use

Realizing effective low-carbon energy operations for your business can be a challenging. It requires measuring and managing the different forms of energy currently used. It requires changing to greener sources of energy, integrating new technologies and processes to modernize old infrastructures and implement new ones. By using the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, companies connect the GH2 value chain from start to finish — providing complete visibility, a single source of truth and data insights to understand and  transform energy production, use and infrastructure.

The Lifecycle Assessment (LCA) solution allows companies to assess environmental impacts of products designs across different key indicators - CO2 emissions, water use, land use, etc. LCA also enables trade-off analysis to identify best alternatives.

The data science experience on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform empowers designers and engineers to enhance their product designs by making decisions in the context of the virtual twin.

Eco-design is a transformative approach to switch from a linear to a circular model. As defined by the ISO 14006 standard, its integrates "environmental aspects into product and design development with the aim of reducing adverse environmental impacts throughout a product’s life cycle". In other words, eco-design considers the environmental impact at all stage of a product's life cycle.
