Esri Releases ArcGIS GeoBIM, Bringing Spatial Context to AEC Operations
Global construction challenges, from affordable housing availability to infrastructure stress as a result of climate change, have increased in recent years. As a result, governments and commercial organizations will need to invest trillions of dollars in the next decade in mitigation and recovery processes. By adopting building information modeling (BIM) and geographic information system (GIS) technology, the architecture, engineering, and construction (AEC) industry improved construction, design, and operations efficiency. Recognizing the benefits for project outcomes that a combined BIM and GIS software would present, Esri, the global leader in location intelligence, joined forces with Autodesk in 2017. The partnership produced new technology, integrating the power of mapping into the BIM process.
Today, Esri is releasing a new product that expands the ability for BIM project teams to benefit from GIS. ArcGIS GeoBIM provides an innovative, easy-to-use web-based experience for AEC teams to explore and collaborate using data from multiple systems in a geospatial context. ArcGIS GeoBIM connects to Autodesk BIM Collaborate Pro, a cloud-based design collaboration, coordination, and model coauthoring software built on the Autodesk Construction Cloud.
"With many global initiatives under way to improve construction, design, and planning practices, it is critical that today's AEC professionals can collaborate together with a common view of assets in a geospatial context," said Jack Dangermond, Esri founder and president. "The ability to operate without siloed data provides AEC professionals with the flexibility they need to work together and meet the challenges of building in the future on an unprecedented scale."
ArcGIS GeoBIM will provide project leaders and stakeholders in industries like infrastructure, construction, planning, water, and transportation with a common view of asset locations, costs, issues, risks, and timelines throughout the project life cycle.
"Autodesk and Esri's cloud-to-cloud connection gives our shared customers a unified experience and the information they need at their fingertips—regardless of whether it's BIM or GIS data," said Amy Bunszel, Autodesk executive vice president of AEC Design Solutions. "This will improve efficiency and decision-making during planning, construction, and operations. Ultimately, our collaboration will help enable the industry to deliver more sustainable and resilient infrastructure."
AEC team members can track design, coordination, quality, safety, and commissioning issues by linking data from Autodesk BIM Collaborate with ArcGIS GeoBIM.
"What we need is a single, authoritative source of truth access point for everyone on our team, a way to bring data and information together that originates from multiple formats," said Darin Welch, HNTB associate vice president and national geospatial and virtual engagement manager. "Esri's ArcGIS GeoBIM connection to the Autodesk Construction Cloud combines survey, design, and planning workflows that offer a blended BIM-GIS data experience that equips our team with more informed decision-making."
ArcGIS GeoBIM is available for widespread use as of October 4, 2021. For more information and to stay up-to-date on the latest offerings, visit go.esri.com/geobim-pr.

Suzano Brings Its Target for Capturing 40 Million Tons of Carbon From the Atmosphere Forward To 202522.10.2021 12:19:00 CEST | Press release
Suzano, the world's leading eucalyptus pulp producer and a global benchmark in the manufacture of bioproducts developed from eucalyptus, announces today that it has revised one of its 14 long-term goals – collectively known as Suzano’s “Commitments to Renewing Life”*. Suzano’s goal to remove 40 million tons of carbon from the air by 2030 has been brought forward by five years to 2025. With this revision, Suzano reinforces its capacity to make an even more positive contribution to the planet's climate by achieving net carbon removals from the atmosphere at a faster pace than previously expected. The new five-year target will be supported by the expansion of Suzano’s forest covering which will involve both an uplift in commercial planting operations and setting aside new designated conservation areas that were previously anthropized. Alongside these improvements, Suzano will maintain its focus on reducing carbon emissions across its own operations and supply chain and will continue to im
