Last night in London, SolidWorks was presented with the award for Best Green Product Innovation at the 2010 Green Awards. According to their website, "the GREEN AWARDS were set up to recognise and reward creative work that communicates the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility, sustainable development and ethical best practice in any sector and across any marketing discipline."
Here's what the judges had to say about SolidWorks Sustainability:
“This entry is our favourite. This software has the potential to revolutionize 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.”
We at SolidWorks are extremely honored by this award, and hope that in the coming years, designing for sustainability becomes a standard practice for companies across the globe.
