Transform Ideas into Sustainable Innovations with the 3DEXPERIENCE Platform

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.

Unlocking the Benefits of Transformation for Sustainable Innovations

Reduced Carbon Footprint

Reduce the carbon footprint of your entire value chain and across production processes to meet sustainability goals.

Decreased Overall Waste

Optimize production processes and use of resources leading to waste reduction

Optimized Energy Consumption

Evaluate and optimize energy consumption at every stage of the product lifecycle, from design, production to end-of-life.

Lower Costs with Virtual Twins

Reduce testing and prototyping costs when creating more sustainable and compliant design alternatives

Enhanced Brand Reputation

Minimize environmental impact while meeting customer expectations towards eco-friendly products and services.

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.
