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.

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 are striving to reduce the environmental and climate impact of our operations by measuring, analyzing, and reducing our resource use and emissions. We’re committed to reducing our emissions and have set a goal to reduce our scope 1 and 2 emissions 15% by 2027 against our 2019 baseline. We also 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.

We will continue to engage with our stockholders, customers, employees, communities, and other stakeholders through feedback, engagement surveys, and by supporting the communities in which we live and work. We believe collaborating with our stakeholders supports our business success.
