Part 5 in a Series: Can Engineers Save the Planet from Climate Change and Its Effects?

By Rodrigo Fernandes, Ph.D, Director, ES(D)G – Empowering Sustainable Development Goals

As of this writing, Bentley’s infrastructure digital twin solutions powered by iTwin, and third-party applications built on the iTwin platform, can unlock infrastructure life cycle assessment workflows, accelerating environmental reporting and project “optioneering”, as well as optimizing the selection of materials and products. We believe this is a game-changer, offering infrastructure engineers unprecedented efficiency in carbon calculation and life cycle analysis, which will allow them to better address their sustainability challenges. We are excited to see how our users and iTwin innovators will apply this powerful new capability across industries and the infrastructure lifecycle.

Infrastructure defines our climate and engineers are at the forefront of future-proofing infrastructure. Empowering sustainable development goals is Bentley’s most strategic priority of the next decade, and we want to have our “handprint” all over ensuring that engineers have the best digital solutions at their disposal so they can build better infrastructure and build infrastructure better.
