Environmental Sustainability

PTC’s environmental strategy is to be a responsible member of the global community by making industry-leading products for sustainable design and by managing our environmental impact by modeling environmental best practices in our business.

PTC Sustainability is about a commitment to the environment and is an important aspect of corporate sustainability. We believe that PTC already has a reasonably light environmental footprint as a software company, but we want to do more. A cross-functional effort has been kicked-off to analyze our practices as they impact the environment to look for ways to make PTC more “green.” We are also encouraging employees to take a look at what they can do to be more “green” in their home and the communities they live in.
