Six Ways to Monitor Environmental Footprint from XLM Solutions

In this post the author and PLM Green Global Alliance contributor Ilan Madjar from XLM Solutions writes: “Today, the topic of climate change and environmental awareness is at the forefront of society’s thoughts and actions as well as affecting governmental policies. Every day there is growing awareness of the problems caused by pollution and greenhouse gas (“GHG”) emissions. The US Government has recently placed new bills before congress geared at funding climate change initiatives and sustainable innovation companies. Such companies can be both new businesses / startups as well as those looking to re-engineer their existing processes to be more environmentally friendly and less polluting (not an easy task by itself). These companies are looking for tools to maintain sustainable innovation. Some of you may have seen the recent videos by Dassault Systèmes explaining their vision and plans to contribute to this environmental-minded transformation.”

“Dassault is providing solutions to track negative environmental footprints, although this is still in the development phases in some respects. This short article will focus on six easy tools/solutions geared to engineering and manufacturing which can be implemented today in 3DEXPERIENCE to improve environmental awareness.”

Virtual Twins and Sustainability

A report from Dassault Systemes and Accenture on the role of virtual twins in accelerating sustainability advocates the transformation of industry that will be needed to achieve sustainability goals by 2030 by developing new ways of managing products and services over their entire lifecycle using virtual digital twins.

The paper examines the “opportunities and the use cases where virtual twins can, or already are, modeling entire value chains as virtual experiences, demonstrating how the technology can unlock combined additional benefits of USD $1.3 Trillion of economic value and 7.5 Gt CO2e emissions reductions between now and 2030.” Read more at https://www.3ds.com/sustainability/sustainability-insights/designing-disruption.
