Keywords: Life Cycle Assessment

SolidWorks Sustainability quickly and easily integrates environmental assessment and sustainable design into your established design process. Sustainability becomes a natural part of your workflow. You get a continuous, real-time dashboard of the impacts of your designs, helping you quickly compare design alternatives to find the most environmentally conscious options that meet your design requirements. You can ensure product quality and performance while developing greener products to better serve your customers and the environment.

SolidWorks Sustainability provides screening-level life cycle assessment (LCA) of your design, applied to both parts and assemblies, with seamless integration to SolidWorks design. SolidWorks Sustainability uses the gold-standard GaBi LCA database from PE International, and offers time-dependent environmental comparisons of different designs, more flexible inputs for detailed assessments, and expanded reporting capabilities to quickly communicate your sustainable design solution.

Included with all SolidWorks 3D CAD packages, SolidWorks SustainabilityXpress performs screening-level life cycle assessment (LCA) of your part designs using the gold-standard GaBi LCA database from PE International to help you understand and communicate the impacts of your design decisions.
