Dassault Systèmes Ranked Second in Global 100 Index of the World’s Most Sustainable Corporations


27 January 2016 – Dassault Systèmes has been ranked second by Corporate Knights in the 2016 Top 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World (Global 100) index.  The company moved up from 17th place in 2015 and is the highest ranked technology company.  This is the fifth consecutive year that Dassault Systèmes has been included in the index.

The Corporate Knights Global 100 index is recognized globally as the gold standard for corporate sustainability analysis.  Rankings are based on the evaluation of a number of key performance indicators (KPIs) including environmental, social, financial and innovation capacity.

Dassault Systèmes provides business and people with 3DEXPERIENCE universes to imagine sustainable innovations capable of harmonizing product, nature and life.  In this regard, sustainability is at the heart of all company activities—from its industry sectors to research and development, site management and human resources.

Many of the 2016 Global 100 companies are Dassault Systèmes customers.  Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform helps them transform the way products are designed, produced, and supported.  Its digital applications enable industry to think differently in terms of collaboration, intelligence and inventing disruptive solutions that can positively impact society.

By implementing a strategy to optimize and transform its activities aimed at reducing its environmental footprint, Dassault Systèmes aims to be a net-positive company—one whose positive impact from the implementation of its solutions is greater than the negative footprint of its activities.  The company recently collaborated with Harvard University on a “handprinting” study to assess this.
