SAP AG released its quarterly sustainability update the end of July and shared that it has achieved a cost avoidance of approximately EUR 185 million between the start of 2008 and today as a result of focused sustainability initiatives.
As part of its ongoing commitment to sustainable operations, SAP realized a EUR 185 million cost avoidance in comparison to a “business as usual” extrapolation leveraging 2007 as a baseline. Emissions and cost avoidance was achieved through a variety of efforts, including investments in energy and carbon efficiency projects, changes in employee behavior and the use of electricity from renewable sources.
For the first time, SAP is reporting against its goal of attaining 25 percent women in management by 2017. For the second quarter of 2011, the company employed 18.2 percent women in management, up from 17.8 percent at the end of 2010.
