Green Awards 2010

Congratulations to our partner Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks! Their CAD software SolidWorks Sustainability has been been recognized as the winner in the category “Best Green New Product Innovation” by the UK Royal Society of Arts.

This software for sustainable design is built on GaBi software and database, leveraging its strength and flexibility to provide integrated product lifecycle assessment and environmental performance insights.

Judges thoughts: “This entry is our favourite. This software has the potential to revolutionise the way designers design their products.  By integrating lifecycle thinking into the design process, SolidWorks helps designers to lower the environmental impact of their creation from the design stage.  Their partnership with independent organisation PE INTERNATIONAL which provides life cycle inventory database makes their product robust and reliable. A must have in any designer’s tool box.”
