Autodesk Chooses SAP(R) Carbon Impact On-Demand Solution to Help Measure and Manage Carbon Footprint and Sustainability Efforts

Design Software Leader Relies on SAP(R) Carbon Impact On-Demand Solution to Assess, Analyze and Act on Greenhouse Gas Reduction and Sustainability Initiatives

WALLDORF, Germany, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- As a leading provider of design and engineering software tools to nine million architects, designers and engineers around the world, Autodesk develops software that enables its customers to make more sustainable design decisions. But when the company needed to better measure and manage its own carbon footprint it quickly realized the tools it had been using were not up to the task. To provide a strong foundation for sustainability efforts both now and in the future, Autodesk chose the SAP(R) Carbon Impact on-demand solution from SAP AG (NYSE: SAP). SAP Carbon Impact will help Autodesk more clearly measure, mitigate and monetize greenhouse gas emissions and other environmental impacts across its internal operations and supply chain.

Autodesk is not only working to improve its own corporate sustainability practices, it is also using its innovative design software to equip customers with the tools they need to make the smartest sustainable design decisions possible. The company has 6,600 employees in more than 100 offices worldwide, and offers the broadest and deepest product portfolio in the design world, including products such as AutoCAD(R), its flagship product and the foundation for CAD (computer-aided design) worldwide.

"SAP Carbon Impact meets our near-term sustainability needs and is also flexible enough to keep pace with changing dynamics and regulations," said Emma Stewart, senior program lead for Autodesk's sustainability initiative. "Having researched other vendors in this space, we feel confident that the SAP software was the best choice and that it more than meets our needs now and can grow with us as our sustainability needs increase. Our goal as a company is to not only prove that our environmental performance efforts positively impact our bottom line, but that there is also a relationship between our sustainability investments and our top line. SAP Carbon Impact will play a significant part in our effort to do just that."

Autodesk joins other industry leaders, including Intuit, SunPower, Casella, the University of Buffalo and others, that use SAP Carbon Impact to help reduce the cost of maintaining a comprehensive carbon emissions inventory, identify opportunities for carbon reduction, and enhance brand value by providing a system to document sustainability initiatives and related carbon reductions. To help customers keep up with ever-changing regulations and advancements, the Web-based SAP Carbon Impact on-demand solution is updated regularly with new functionality and reference content, such as emission factors, financial models for reduction projects and support for carbon reporting protocols.

"Autodesk is demonstrating to customers and markets that it is a forward-looking example of using IT technology to drive sustainability initiatives," said Peter Graf, chief sustainability officer and executive vice president of Sustainability Solutions, SAP AG. "The wide range of features in the SAP Carbon Impact on-demand solution allows customers like Autodesk to reliably measure their carbon footprint, make a business case for reduction and take action to improve."
