SAP Cloud for Sustainability Enterprises Comms/ snapshot blog

Greetings and salutations my friends and colleagues. Happy New Year 2022. Cheers to health, happiness, and a more sustainable future for our families and loved ones.

If you had the opportunity to be back in the office last week from holiday break, you most likely caught some of the Board level and SAP SE communications around our new launch of SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises. I sure did. And it was awesome. Sustainability, Cloud, Climate Action, Circular Economy, Social Responsibility, are all terms I speak a few hundred times a day, and cannot seem to get enough of the topic.

Our SAP message, Eco nomics: Bringing profit and planet together. There has always been a demand for global business to act and run sustainably. But now it has become law in some countries and at the top mind for every C Level executive across the globe. And SAP has been in lock step with these global changes and initiatives from the very beginning almost a decade ago. In this blog post I simply will provide a list with links to all of last week’s communications around the SAP for Sustainability products and the board level communications around our own commitment and the long road ahead. They are all great reads, take some time to learn more about what we are doing as a company, our sustainability product offering, and our road ahead.

SAP has published Five Actions for running a Sustainable Business. Let’s hear them directly from SAP Board Member and Chief Marketing and Solutions Officer, Julia White in her blog post from last week, SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises: Taking Action Together

Another new area that launched last week was the Guide for Sustainable Enterprises page(s). This area covers it all, from the Five Actions for a Sustainable Enterprise, Customer Stories, a message for SAP Partners, SAP Cloud for Sustainable Product site(s), and our own SAP sustainability commitments to the world, our employees, our customers and our partners.
