Managing a global, diverse and skilled workforce is a critical part of our business. Ansys believes in giving back to the communities in which we work and reside and in areas aligned to our business through our community relations efforts.

We believe that through our products, we have an opportunity to help our customers develop clean technologies and products. At the same time, we endeavor to integrate environmental resource management considerations into the planning of our facilities and data centers.

Ansys’ position as a leader in engineering simulation is possible primarily due to our constant focus on providing high quality, innovative products to our customers. We acknowledge our customers’ expectations of data security and respect for their privacy, as well as the need to ensure business continuity and unwavering adherence to business ethics and integrity.

Simulation solutions save raw materials and ultimately reduce our customers’ carbon footprint by replacing physical testing with digital testing and accelerating time to market. But perhaps more significantly, when used as part of the design and development phase, simulation can help Ansys' customers build effective and efficient products that are integral to meeting the environmental sustainability needs of the future. Applying engineering simulation solutions reduces cost, shortens time to market and reduces risk of failure by improving product quality.
