The PTC has made a Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) Commitment Letter, committing to both short-term emissions reductions and long-term net zero targets.
PTC has announced new initiatives as part of its commitment to environmental sustainability. The Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) has adopted a Commitment Letter to commit to both short-term emissions reductions and long-term net zero targets. In addition, PTC is expanding its relationships with Ansys and aPriori to help support manufacturers’ environmental sustainability goals in the areas of product dematerialization and manufacturing efficiency.
In parallel with its SBTi services, PTC is expanding the ways in which it supports manufacturers’ efforts to help reduce the environmental footprint of their products. Most of the product’s environmental footprint is determined in terms of the period where decisions are made, for example, materials, manufacturability and potential for circulation. PTC helps manufacturers address these electronic footprint considerations with its product design and software lifecycle software and through new integrations from partners such as Ansys and aPriori.
PTC and Ansys, which have collaborated for many years on product design and simulation software, are looking for more work between PTC’s Creo computer-aided design (CAD) and product lifecycle management (PLM) software Cold Wind with Ansys’ material management information solution, Ansys Granta MI . These workflows are expected to make it easier for machine tools to assess the impact of materials on their product performance, carbon incorporation, and recyclability, helping the clients of these companies to develop more sustainable and higher quality products.
PTC and aPriori will pursue greater collaboration between Cool Wind and aPriori aP Pro, aP Design, and aP Generate software. Together, these solutions allow designers to review CAD and PLM designs and generate reports on part costs, manufacturability and environmental footprint. If changes are required, training from Prior can generate design recommendations. This process can help increase the likelihood of making a change before excessive costs and footprints can be committed.
