Key commitments to address Water & Consumption challenges

Reduce the water footprint

The overconsumption of fresh water is one of the greatest threats the planet faces.

Irresponsible use of water to produce consumer goods and services jeopardizes the availability of water resources, which is why the United Nations Decade of Actions includes among its Sustainable Development Goals “ensuring access to water and sanitation for all.”

Dassault Systèmes wishes to give our customers, partners and ecosystem the means to better understand their impact on water resources, and work with them to create sustainable approaches to consumption.

We will adapt our solutions to provide customers, in all industries, the ability to measure the water footprint of anything they create and optimize water’s use throughout its lifecycle, starting before market launch.

Alice Steenland, Chief Sustainability officer, Dassault Systèmes shares her experience with us.

Innovation for Water Protection

To protect water from over consumption requires the creation of novel solutions to shrink our footprint and enlarge our handprint.

Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Lab is an open innovation incubator that identifies and nurtures innovators, makers and passionate individuals who are developing concrete solutions to address the world’s greatest challenges.

The Lab has forged partnerships with projects around the world to help bring sustainable solutions to life, ranging from engineering solutions that harness the power of water to supporting local communities to actively engage in water conservation.

OceanHub Africa, a new partner of the Lab, is an organization inspiring ocean-conscious innovators across Africa and demonstrating the commercial viability of an ocean-minded economy.

Alexis Grosskopf, CEO & Co-founder of OceanHub Africa will share his experience with us.


Empower future generation

Changing our approach toward water starts with empowering future generations with the right skills for sustainable innovation.

That is why Dassault Systèmes is strongly committed education especially through 3DEXPERIENCE Edu, which promises to help people “Never stop growing!” We empower five million students every year on Dassault Systèmes’ solutions. We also contribute to skills development on sustainable innovation thanks to our annual students’ competition “Innovate for sustainability”.

La Fondation Dassault Systèmes aims to supports the transformation of education and research. It is helping to address the mission of protecting the world’s water by supporting an innovative educational program, Mission Ocean.

The program nurtures vocations amongst young people to become scientists and innovators and support project-based learning pedagogy that allows students to expand their skills while increasing their sensitivity to sustainable development.
