Sustainability @ SAP Silicon Valley

Vanguard, transformational leader, pilot location,
innovators, etc.. are some of the terms used to describe sustainability @ SAP Silicon
Valley.  Taking the philosophical meaning of sustainability and applying it tactically over the past
six years, we have applied measures to embed projects and programs into our
daily activities on campus. From installing more than 600 solar panels on the
roofs of two Palo Alto offices — that generate approximately 5% of the total
power consumption on campus — to the sustainable farm-to-fork food services in
our 3 main cafeterias, SAP Silicon Valley has taken the initiative to run
simple and run sustainable.

Other programs include: the comprehensive alternative
commuting programs, the electric vehicle charging infrastructure –supporting
the Guinness world record for most pure ev’s in a single parade line – our collaborative
work environments that use far less resources than traditional office plans, the
industry recognized 100% waste stream diversion program, exterior landscaping
that applies the principals of xeriscaping, energy star rated buildings and on
to the ISO14011 (Environmental Management System) certification, etc.

Many of the great ideas and activities for sustainability at
SAP come from our colleagues across lines of businesses globally through the
Sustainability Champions Network. The sustainability champions’ network is
about creating awareness and enabling change to enhance SAP’s continual
transformation. Champions are role models, multipliers and motivators. They are
passionate about how we as a company, and as individuals, impact the
environmental, economic and social aspects of this one earth we all live on. We
encourage you to learn and contribute to the discussion.

If you are interested in learning more about sustainability at
SAP, join us during the Month
of Inclusion
sessions happening February 17, 18, 19 in Palo Alto, Dublin,
