Earth Day 2021: How SAP Solutions Can Help Create Sustainable Business

April 22, 2021

Earth Day SAP

Global businesses take steps every day to become more innovative through new technologies, but overlook the bigger picture. Businesses should be building on top of their core foundation, operations, and mission to ensure a better future tomorrow. Creating sustainable solutions that reduce your carbon footprint, will lead to a more sustainable world in the future. Our partner, SAP has taken great strides in bettering our world through providing sustainable business solutions, built with the goal of putting social impact first. In fact, SAP has set a goal to be carbon-neutral in its own operations by the end of 2023.

"Sustainability combines the vision of the Intelligent Enterprise and SAP’s purpose to help the world run better and improve people’s lives in the most natural way. It also presents a unique opportunity for us to create a lasting, positive impact for future generations. In 2009, SAP set to reduce greenhouse gas emissions back to the levels of 2000 by the year 2020. We achieved that goal more than two years early, despite increasing our employee base fourfold," Christian Klein, CEO of SAP says.

Because global business is the source of production and consumption, it is also a key culprit that affects climate change, but it's also the source of the solutions to our growing problem. Technology can manage carbon emissions, accelerate the transition to a circular economy, and reduce waste.

With SAP solutions, businesses can take a more holistic approach to their processes. The solutions are not only based around technology, but also people, who are the decision-makers who have the ability to make these changes. Businesses have a major role in changing the economic system that support sustainable growth and goals.
