SAP: striving to lower supply chain carbon emissions
SAP and sustainable supply chains
In line with the CEO Carbon Neutral Challenge, SAP has been working alongside its customers to help in the transition towards a low-carbon economy, as well as striving to deliver its own climate goals.
As part of its efforts, SAP has pledged to improve efficiency, transparency and accountability of carbon emissions across supply chains; drive innovation of processes and business models; and drive engagement between industries, governments and consumers.
“SAP is not only a world-leading innovation and technology company, we are a world-leading sustainability company,” commented Jennifer Morgan, Co-CEO and Member of the Executive Board, SAP. “Marco Bizzarri’s CEO Carbon Neutral Challenge is complementary to our own commitment to helping businesses use innovative technology to achieve their most ambitious climate goals so they can take responsible actions and make a positive difference.”
What does SAP provide for its supply chain customers?
SAP has a team of innovation services and solutions professionals, focused on helping companies embrace the disruption and transformation happening within businesses, as they start to use intelligent technologies, to track carbon emissions from their upstream supply chains to downstream logistics.
SAP also aims to be a role model for its customers, by committing to make its own operations carbon neutral by 2025 - including all direct emissions as well as, a select subset of indirect emissions from its supply chain services.When emissions can’t be avoided or reduced, SAP has pledged to compensate by investing in CO2 offsets.
“As businesses, we must all own up to the total GHG emissions our activities generate and, at the same time, invest in nature-based solutions to protect our world’s critical forests and biodiversity, simultaneously helping to mitigate climate change,” commented Marco Bizzarri, Gucci President and CEO. “I applaud SAP’s commitment to join the CEO Carbon Neutral Challenge. The leadership they are showing by doing so will help create a future in which society can thrive and business can succeed, while nature is restored and protected.”
