PTC has announced several new environmental initiatives to boost sustainability in its operations.

The new commitments, announced at the recent LiveWorx 23 conference in Boston, included PTC signing the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) commitment letter, pledging both near-term emissions reductions and long-term net-zero targets.

“PTC’s SBTi commitment is rooted in our belief that it’s the right thing to do as we consider the impacts of climate change,” said Catherine Kniker, PTC’s chief strategy and marketing officer.

“It’s also part of a broader commitment that we’re making with our manufacturing customers, as we’ll reduce our own footprint in a manner that’s consistent with their environmental sustainability goals.”

The SBTi is a global body established in 2015 to give businesses a framework to set emission reduction targets.

PTC also announced its expanded partnership with Ansys and aPriori at LiveWorx to create systems that give manufacturers greater insight into the environmental sustainability of products and manufacturing processes.

These collaborations include improving interoperability between PTC’s product lifecycle management (PLM) software, Windchill, with Ansys and aPriori’s product design and simulation software.

Combined, these platforms allow engineers to review designs and generate reports on

manufacturability, and environmental footprint. aPriori’s software can generate recommendations to improve the sustainability and efficiency of design, allowing changes to be made early on in the design process.

“These workflows help engineers balance performance and environmental footprint priorities providing predictively accurate, traceable, and reliable materials information,” said Ansys vice president Mark Hindsbo.

“Today, manufacturers face constant pressure to simultaneously increase profitability and sustainability,” said Stephanie Feraday, aPriori CEO. “We are uniquely positioned to provide automated manufacturing insights to help cut costs, reduce carbon emissions, and improve productivity from early product design through production.”
