Autodesk Ranks #6 Among IT Companies On Newsweek Magazine’s Green Rankings

Stocks in this article: ADSK

Newsweek Magazine this week recognized Autodesk, Inc. (NASDAQ: ADSK) as one of the greenest companies. Autodesk was ranked #6 among information technology and services companies, and #21 overall in the top 500 U.S. companies in Newsweek’s Green Rankings.

The annual Newsweek Green Rankings look at the largest publically traded companies in the U.S. and globally ranks them on performance in such areas as greenhouse gas emissions, waste reduction and management of natural resources. Autodesk performed particularly well in the Environmental Impact measurement, and stood out for its green building strategy, including LEED certifications; well below average carbon emissions; and detailed policy on green procurement.

“Sustainability is at the core of how Autodesk operates and what our technology enables our customers to achieve,” said Carl Bass, president and CEO of Autodesk. “We have a positive impact through greening our own operations, but also through the tools we supply to our millions of customers worldwide who imagine, design and create more efficient buildings, infrastructure and products. We’re honored to be recognized alongside so many of our customers on Newsweek’s prestigious list.”

Using Design Thinking to Reduce Impacts

Autodesk focuses its efforts on the areas where it can have the most positive impact on the future of the planet. A key component of that strategy is providing design software to those who create the built environment, supply energy and water, plan cities, and define manufacturing processes, in order to encourage sustainable project outcomes. Autodesk leads by example in its own operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint, and more efficiently using water, materials and other resources in its facilities and across the value chain. The company employs its own software using its buildings as a testing ground for new ideas, workflows and sustainable design solutions, strengthening the business and creating knowledge that Autodesk can share with others.
