Design for Life

Sustainable Design Dassault Systemes

The Sustainability Imperative in Design & Innovation

We must collectively move from a culture of "creating in the absence of limits" to "creating in a limited world".

We have reached a moment in human history where we must design for sustainability and the impact on society. If we want to shift individual and collective behavior toward sustainability, we first need to engage people with compelling reasons to do so — with meaningful, beautiful, emotional experiences.
