How will your product survive in a new greener market? SOLIDWORKS Sustainability integrates environmental assessment and sustainable design quickly and easily into your existing design process.

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.
