SAP takes a holistic approach to sustainability and this recognition by the EPA is great validation for our environmental efforts. Since taking wide-reaching measures in 2008, SAP has reduced its carbon footprint by nine percent in spite of a strong company growth. SAP is committed to preserving natural resources and helping our customers do the same.
