Consumers, backed by Regulators, are expecting companies to act in more sustainable ways as a company and to launch more eco-efficient products in the marketplace
Better supply chain planning drives more sustainable business for manufacturers and retailers
Consumer belief systems are changing and they are disproportionately rewarding ‘brands with a purpose’ and ‘companies with a purpose’. That purpose is to help create a better world environmentally, economically, and from a humanitarian perspective.
As a business choice, sustainability can be a smart approach to create long-term value by actively considering how the organization operates in the ecological, social, and economic environment. Making sustainability a priority is built on the assumption that developing such strategies fosters company longevity. Millennial consumers, it is said, pressured companies to think more about sustainability. But Generation Z wants proof. It is now up to companies to make the commitment and take an authentic approach to sustainability.
Drive a top-down approach to sustainability:
Leadership needs to set objectives and ensure understanding in the company
Provide the tools and processes that enable employees to make an impact and contribute to objectives
Establish a platform for collaboration to create the best ideas to promote sustainability
Discover how Dassault Systèmes' 3DEXPERIENCE virtual universes can be used to imagine, design and test the radically new products, materials and processes needed to create a sustainable economy in a variety of industries.
Companies taking an authentic approach to sustainability and showing progress are creating a competitive advantage that is the foundation of long-term business growth.
The 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, with its powerful planning capabilities, supports more eco-efficient and sustainable supply chains. The platform enables companies to implement more sustainable raw materials with virtual design and simulation tools. To promote eco-efficiency, the platform enables optimized manufacturing and logistics to lower the carbon footprint and promote fewer, friendlier miles for trucking. Companies can also choose to funnel profits to projects, for example, that help clean the environment or create a more eco-efficient business model.
