Autodesk, a leader in 3D design, engineering and entertainment software, delivers a broad portfolio of solutions to help make sustainable buildings and infrastructure easier and more cost-effective.
Corporate Social Responsibility
With our broad customer base, more than 6,500 employees, and thousands of vendors and partners worldwide, Autodesk has the opportunity to influence the future of the built world, not only through the power of sustainable design software, but by greening our own business and collaborating with vendors and partners to support sustainable business practices.
• Autodesk Carbon Footprint—While the Autodesk carbon footprint is relatively small, we strive to accurately measure and reduce it, modeling best practices in corporate carbon accounting.
• Corporate Greenhouse Gas Target—Autodesk has developed and implemented a method for setting corporate greenhouse gas targets that align with globally accepted climate stabilization targets.
• Corporate Environmental Management—Autodesk’s environmental management system helps us make sustainability decisions and improve environmental performance in areas where the company has the most impact: employee travel; facilities; major events; IT operations; product delivery.
• Using Autodesk Software to Reduce Autodesk’s Impact—Autodesk has used Autodesk software to measure and reduce the impact of our own facilities. In doing so, we test and improve the ability of Autodesk software to help customers green their businesses, while greening our own business at the same time.
• Engaging with Vendors and Suppliers—Autodesk works with its vendors and suppliers to support more sustainable business practices and offerings within their organizations.
• Socially Responsible Investment Indexes—Because of the company’s strong environmental performance, Autodesk has been included in several socially responsible investment (SRI) indexes.
Autodesk’s comprehensive portfolio of software solutions help to make sustainable design easier, more insightful, and more cost-effective for architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) professionals and owners responsible for building and infrastructure projects.
Autodesk Building Information Modeling (BIM) is an intelligent model-based design process that provides powerful insight to all stakeholders across the lifecycle of buildings and infrastructure. The information-rich BIM process supports better informed decision making by enabling analysis, simulation, and visualization of projects virtually, before construction or renovation begins.
Solutions for More Sustainable Buildings
• Optimize energy performance of new or existing buildings using whole building energy, water, and carbon analysis.
• Help reduce material waste during construction with advanced simulation and collaboration tools that can help coordinate scheduling and resolve design conflicts
• More accurately predict energy use and costs using information rich design models to help monitor and maintain building performance.
Solutions for More Sustainable Infrastructure
• Help identify project sites that make the best use of existing resources, and better understand potential environmental impacts
• Design low-impact and green infrastructure projects with tools that help to quickly evaluate multiple options and minimize impact on stormwater quantity and quality.
• Manage infrastructure information more efficiently with intelligent industry models that help maintain data quality standards and better support future decision making.

SUSTAINABLE CITIES IN ASIA-PACIFIC
Autodesk case study addresses how the growth of Asian cities has been responsible for improving the living standards of many, but if cities are not properly managed, the results can be catastrophic. Already, they are grappling with pollution, an inadequate supply of potable water, people living in urban slums and traffic congestion of crippling proportions. In order to address these challenges, cities need to think positively and strategically. Their aim should be to balance sustainable urban practices with the need to provide ever-more people with access to a better quality of life and economic opportunities.
