    Our All-in-One Offerings for Your Sustainability Management

    Whether it's due to external factors like statutory regulations, demanding investors, or discerning end-users or internal factors such as a company's culture, the calls for change are only getting louder. By aligning processes end-to-end in a sustainable manner, we harmonize the necessary organizational factors, the awareness of those involved, and the implementation of the appropriate IT solutions. Set up this way, you can make your business's transformation measurable, transparent, and scalable.

    Statutory requirements aside, companies can also position themselves proactively in relation to competitors, customers, suppliers, and financial institutions. This gives them ways to attract business based on their sustainability. Companies can thus not only secure short-term business and corresponding profits, but also build up a valuable reputation with future customers. When investing in a sustainability-oriented business model, companies find they spend less, both on procurement and when repaying loans to financial institutions. 

    They can also position themselves better in the increasing battle for quality employees. On the one hand, holistic sustainability management can help a company focus on its staff and make valuable progress in this regard. At the same time, these internal efforts enable companies to make a positive outward impression on potential future employees.

    With the right mindset and the proper tools on your path to sustainability

    SAP solutions

    SAP offers a comprehensive cloud portfolio that integrates data and processes to manage carbon footprints, reduce material waste, and contribute to a more sustainable economy. And it's all backed up by the power and expertise of a global ecosystem. Using the SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises, a company’s sustainability can be measured, managed, reported on, and optimized – all with just one license.

    Integrating sustainable features will expand your core processes to cover operational and financial insights as well as empirical values. In particular, there are systems for comprehensive reporting, as well as solutions for climate change, circular economy, and social responsibility. The SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises uses solutions from the areas of holistic steering and reporting, zero emissions, zero waste, and zero inequality.

    • SAP for Sustainability Control Tower

      The Holistic Steering & Reporting area makes it possible to bundle financial and non-financial key figures into one package. This allows the data to be used for further analysis, optimization, and reporting. One central solution for this is SAP Sustainability Control Tower.

      Thanks to its modular design, the SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises can be seamlessly integrated into S/4HANA implementations and migrations or integrated into your existing IT landscape. 

    • Zero Emissions with Climate Actions

      In this area, you can manage both product-related and organizational emissions (e.g. greenhouse gases). The main systems here are SAP Product Footprint Management and SAP EHS Environment Management.

      SAP Integrated Business Planning, for example, supports you in the sustainability of your production and procurement and offers the option of integrating SAP PFM.

    • Zero Waste with Circular Economy

      When it comes to zero waste, efforts can be made and measured in the context of circular economy. You can use two primary systems – SAP Responsible Design and Production and SAP EHS Environment Management (Waste Management) – to define and control the design, procurement, production, sales, disposal, and reusability of your products.

    • Zero Inequality with Social Responsibility

      This subject area gives you the means to meet your responsibilities both along your supply chain and within your company. The main systems are SAP EHS Environment Management (Health and Safety Management, Incident Management, Occupational Health) and SAP S/4HANA for product compliance.
