JOHANNESBURG, South Africa, 15 May 2017,-/African Press Association (APA)/– Addressing this worldwide challenge is both an obligation as well as an opportunity for businesses.

In addition, SAP has set ambitious internal carbon targets.


Avoid – Reduce – Compensate

This means:

* Avoid: Whenever possible, SAP aims first to avoid the creation of GHG, e.g. usage of virtual telecommunication.

* Reduce: If emissions cannot be avoided, SAP seeks to drive efficiency and reduce GHG emissions, e.g. building efficiency, data center operations, carpooling and car sharing, e-mobility.
