During the first week of July, we opened the sustainability and green IT call for proposals for SAP TechEd 2009 – exclusively for SAP Community Network (SCN) members.  So your peers and colleagues worked hard to gather their ideas and experiences using SAP technology to build more sustainable business practices into their session proposals. 

We received several excellent proposals for Phoenix, Vienna, and Bangalore, so the selection committee had their work cut out for them selecting the winning sessions.  This selection committee made up of active SCN members who focus on sustainability and green IT reviewed and selected the 5 best sessions for each location.

Today, I’m happy announce the winning SCN sustainability and green IT sessions for SAP TechEd 2009.
