Creating a sustainable future

At Autodesk, sustainability is about creating technology that improves energy and material productivity. It’s about supporting innovators through grants, software donations, and training. And it’s about leading by example with our own operations, advancing sustainability business practices, and supporting every employee to make a positive impact.

Technology for a rapidly changing world

Empowering people to design, collaborate, build, and fabricate in ways that improve productivity–while also reducing waste, saving money, and staying competitive–is the goal behind our sustainable design technology. Our software harnesses the power of automation to achieve business and sustainability goals.

Catalyzing innovation through philanthropy

Through financial grants, software donations, technical training, and more, we support many of the entrepreneurs and innovators on the front lines of solving today’s most pressing social and environmental challenges.

Walking the talk in our operations

We power our facilities, cloud services, events, and employee work from home with 100% renewable energy. For the second year in a row, we neutralized our greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across our operations and entire value chain, through the deployment of the Autodesk Carbon Fund. When it comes to sustainable business practices, we set ambitious goals and work with our employees, customers, and partners to achieve them.
