Sustainability Strategy


SAP has a broad portfolio of solutions aimed at meeting sustainable business objectives, measuring their impact on the environment, analyzing data and producing detailed reports.

Sustainability strategy will shape the future of business

The risk of acting
as if nothing happened

The companies of the future will have to focus their efforts on creating long-term value. Proving a healthy income statement is no longer enough. A firm commitment to the development of people and respect for natural resources will weigh heavily in the companies’ valuations.

The profitability of a company based solely on economic criteria is no longer the only guarantee of its future viability. Financial metrics are not sufficient to weight the value of companies upward. There are new rules of the game. A globalized market and increasingly scarce natural resources. Today there is a demand for socially and environmentally responsible companies.

Sustainable investment is that which adds environmental, social and governance concerns to financial criteria. Companies that successfully integrate sustainability into the DNA of their management will consolidate their position and gain new competitive advantages. One of the main objectives is the need to establish ESG measurement standards in order to unify criteria.

Social Factor S

Actions related to labor conditions and respect for human rights. Relationship management with communities where the company operates. Protection and promotion of a diverse company, which generates inclusion, as well as a healthy space for employees.
