Sustainable Mobility

Twenty-three million electric cars are targeted to be sold globally in 2030, leading to 5,750,000 tons (1) of retired batteries by 2040. With the climate change agenda taking center stage globally, automotive and battery producers are under pressure to transform what and how they produce. 
How can manufacturers drive a carbon-free future for mobility within a complex and siloed ecosystem? It’s possible with an integrated platform that provides digital continuity to lower the end-to-end carbon footprint of electric vehicles (EVs) by 2050, in line with global net zero initiatives.

Forge Ahead With More Innovative Routes

To deliver EVs with a lower carbon footprint, automobile manufacturers need advanced technologies to mitigate carbon-intensive processes and keep costs under control. The answer lies in a cloud-based platform strategy that enables the entire ecosystem to develop and deliver sustainable EVs together. On an integrated digital platform, all stakeholders can work closely and achieve carbon reduction through: 

Decarbonize Automotives With Electrification > Decarbonization > Dassault Systèmes

Optimal electric vehicle designs

Reducing carbon emissions requires optimal electric vehicle design. Manufacturers can integrate modeling and simulation technologies to create a vehicle’s virtual twin by digitalizing product development. Analyzing a virtual twin's design, behavior and manufacturability will help manufacturers design vehicles that are recyclable, reusable or remanufacturable and can be easily disassembled at end of life. 

By implementing multiscale and multidisciplinary solutions on a single digital platform, manufacturers are better positioned to reduce the carbon footprint of vehicle electrification across their entire value chain. The stories below highlight significant initiatives by transportation and mobility industry players to incorporate greener processes into their operations.

Companies Embracing Sustainability

Decarbonize Automotives With Electrification > Decarbonization > Dassault Systèmes


Evoletric is integrating circular economy principles into their products and processes. They are producing low-waste designs, reusing and recycling limited materials and advancing global electrification to reduce carbon emissions.

Decarbonize Automotives With Electrification > Decarbonization > Dassault Systèmes


Texelis reduced energy consumption by expanding the life of vehicle subsystems in line with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goal 9. In doing so, they are building resilient infrastructure and supporting green industrialization.

The Heart of Decarbonization

As the single source of truth, the 3DEXPERIENCE® platform brings together systems engineering, modeling, simulation and project management tools to support innovative collaboration and streamline all automotive processes on a single cloud-based platform. 

With digital continuity, complete visibility and access to advanced platform solutions such as virtual twin technology and lifecycle assessment, automotive players can better understand where they stand, see where innovation can take them and plan how to get there efficiently with a smaller carbon footprint.

According to the Financial Times Focus report:

  • 26% of businesses have adopted advanced digital tools to design and build products with lower carbon emissions
  • 52% of businesses are in the process of joining the ranks

Electric Vehicles Environmental Impact

Electric vehicles (EVs) are gaining traction as eco-conscious substitutes for conventional gasoline-driven vehicles. Although EVs hold promise for emission reduction and enhanced air quality, their environmental influence hinges on the electricity supply.

Research into EV lifecycle reveals that their green advantages rely on electric grid efficiency and power sources. Utilizing renewable energy to charge EVs can mitigate their environmental footprint.
