Advancing Customer ESG objectives with SAP Business Technology Platform
With SAP customers generating 87% of total global commerce, SAP solutions currently touch most of the world’s financial systems and commerce. This connection to business networks is an important tool for partners as they support their customers to achieve environmental, social, and governance (ESG) objectives.
According to Gabriele Goertz, Vice President and Global Head of the Sustainability Ecosystem at SAP, “When combined with partner expertise and innovation, that reach across business domains and processes becomes a powerful tool for advancing key corporate agendas, including environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals.”
In her blog, Goertz shares that increasing organizational interest around ESG-related goals is opening opportunities for solution providers and implementors. Opportunities that SAP partners are seizing with the help of the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP).
SAP partners are successfully innovating on SAP BTP – delivering on ESG requirements with the aid of a strong partner ecosystem and access to ESG-specific enablement and support. Armed with the platform and key ESG-related solutions such as the SAP Sustainability Control Tower solution, SAP partners are well equipped to deliver on all aspects of today’s corporate environmental agendas, from efficiency improvements and risk mitigation to emissions and waste reduction.
Goertz also calls out, “We are reaching a fork in the road where businesses will have two key choices in their digital transformation journey. They can either invest in ESG efforts to gain the associated benefits of circularity, efficiency, and resilience or stray from the sustainability and process integrity that environmentally discerning customers demand”.
For those businesses that choose to invest in ESG efforts, SAP partners are well positioned. Through SAP BTP and its related services, SAP partners can realize new business opportunities and become a force for positive change, supporting their customers to become more responsible and sustainable – reaping the benefits of increased efficiencies, resilience, and revenues.
