EXECUTIVE SUMMARY

This report provides CSOs, VPs of sustainability and CSR directors with independent analysis of SAP’s approach to sustainability reporting. To better understand this topic Verdantix interviewed Peter Graf, CSO and EVP Sustainability Solutions at SAP. Verdantix found that SAP commits to operating a sustainable business, using its sustainability report to showcase the firm’s software applications. Internal and external barriers still remain if SAP is to take its sustainability reporting to the next level. These include obtaining CFO buy in, acceptance of a common framework and regulatory support.
