Sustainability is a thing in the software business too

Sustainability is not just something that touches resource-heavy industries. At Cadmatic, we have embarked on a journey to comply with EU sustainability reporting requirements to transparently report on how our activities impact people and the environment. We all have a part to play in creating the kind of future we want to live in, and that’s why we care about sustainability and the environment. What’s even better, it’s something our customers care about deeply too. We are a perfect fit!

Our vision for the world is one where we empower engineers to build a brighter future and better world. We do this by making the design, engineering, construction and operation of ships, industrial plants and buildings better, faster and easier. 

Our customers are on a quest to design, build, and operate ships, industrial plants and buildings that are safer, more environmentally friendly, cleaner, and more efficient.

Through our design tools and information management solutions, we partner with our customers to create this better, brighter, and more sustainable future. We’re in this together. We also support worthy causes to promote environmental and social wellbeing. 

Embracing global causes for 2023 holiday season

In 2023, Cadmatic redirected our holiday gift funds to support humanitarian and environmental causes, choosing to donate to the Red Cross, World Food Programme, Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, and the World Wide Fund for Nature instead of traditional gifts. This reflects our commitment to sustainability and positively impacting the global community and environment, in line with our sustainability strategy.

Actions speak louder than words – We are helping to clean up our oceans

Every year, millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans, the vast majority of which is washed down rivers. If nothing is done, plastic will have a greater impact on our ecosystems, health, and economies. That is why Cadmatic supported the largest cleanup in history in 2022, aimed at ridding our oceans of unwanted plastic and securing our future.

UN 2030 Sustainable Development Goals

At Cadmatic, we have noted the significance of the UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Goals in creating a better and more sustainable world. We believe that we can make a positive difference together with our customers in the following areas.

Affordable and clean energy

We work with a wide range of energy companies, such as GreenE Waste from Spain, which designs and builds waste-to-energy power plants. We share their values of sustainability and environmental friendliness. Another example is Midcon Designer from Poland, who recently used Cadmatic to design the world’s first passenger vessel with capabilities for sustainable liquid hydrogen propulsion. Together we are making a difference!

Responsible production

Sometimes, seemingly insignificant things can have a significant impact over time. By using Cadmatic information management solutions, Scheepswerf Slob from the Netherlands managed to reduce the number of printed production drawings by approx. 80%, over time, accruing vast paper savings. With our Electrical Design software, Melior Projekt OÜ was able to design the most environmentally friendly building in the Baltic states according to BREEAM standards. They designed the low-current systems, lighting solutions, and building automation.

Clean water and sanitation

Through cooperation with customers like the Finnish Consulting Group, we contribute to improved wastewater treatment and return to the natural environment. All the largest wastewater treatment plants in Finland have been designed with Cadmatic.

Decent work and economic growth

We go beyond the call of duty to create a workplace that our employees love and allows for a healthy work-life balance. Only by creating a sustainable working environment can we achieve our growth targets and assist our customers in achieving their goals.
