Sustainability in 2021
In her podcast series, Ask Big Questions with co-host Bill Gates, Rashida Jones said:
“We have these emissions, there’s transportation, which I feel like a lot of people know because there’s a lot of discussion around electric vehicles and all that, but then we have buildings, we have manufacturing, agriculture and electricity generation, which are all significant parts of the puzzle.”
SAP is all-in on sustainability and SAP CEO Christian Klein wrote:
“Eighty-five percent of the largest carbon emission-intensive companies use SAP to manage their processes, representing a huge opportunity. Digital technologies can help save huge amounts of carbon emissions in major industries like utilities, agriculture, and transport alone. These savings could potentially equal 500 billion trees. Just imagine the impact if all industries joined the effort.”
Whether it’s reducing microplastics, a plastic-free ocean, or a circular economy, SAP is working with companies to move this forward. But you can make a difference too! Got suggestions (such as changing to a low flow shower head), post them in the comments.
How are you going to drive change in 2021? Post below!
