Ben-Thompson-Autodesk.jpeg Autodesk‘s mission is to help people imagine design and create a better world. The company is a leader in 3D design technology, helping engineers, architects and designers bring their designs to life. With 100 locations in 42 countries — each staffing approximately 7,500 employees — Autodesk’s carbon footprint is a major issue. Ben Thompson, the brand’s Sustainable Business Program Manager, has spearheaded the company’s longterm greenhouse gas reduction target. But launching toward an 85% greenhouse gas reduction by 2050 is quite the task.
