SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises

SAP Cloud for Sustainable Enterprises

Kick-start your sustainability journey

Businesses are under immense pressure from customers, investors, employees and regulators to become sustainable enterprises. 

79% of buyers are changing their preferences based on sustainability, whilst 90% of employees implied that a company's ESG efforts enhance their job satisfaction. So failure to address sustainability is not just bad for the planet, it's also bad for your organisation. 

Proactively embracing sustainability not only sets your business apart, it will help you unlock numerous opportunities for growth. If your organisation is already leveraging an SAP platform, take the lead in addressing sustainability challenges by integrating SAP's cutting-edge sustainability solutions. Tailor these solutions to align with your specific needs and sustainability maturity level, initiating a journey towards decarbonisation, waste reduction and a heightened social impact.

Businesses that develop strong sustainability practices and policies catch the eyes of investors, customers and talent and achieve better economic results.

Tap into the power of data to make sustainability a reality

Two key challenges faced by organisations on the path to sustainability are data and reporting. Whilst data is key to unlocking opportunities for sustainability, monitoring progress and reporting - collecting, processing and integrating this data can be difficult.

At Delaware, we specialise in crafting transparent reports that not only enhance your sustainability outcomes but also propel you forward on your journey towards a sustainable future.

In this way, they help you drive sustainability at scale by embedding operations, experience, and financial insights into your core business processes. Key tools that will help you pave the way to a sustainable future, include: 

SAP Sustainability Control Tower

SAP Sustainability Control Tower is an overarching cloud system that integrates sustainability data pulled from SAP and non-SAP systems, with all your business processes. A tool for holistic steering, it allows you to set KPIs, monitor your progress on climate action, circular economy and social responsibility against predefined objectives, adjust objectives and metrics as the situation merits and report in accordance with frameworks like GRI or the upcoming CSRD standards. 

The key benefits of SAP Sustainability Control Tower include:

  • A holistic understanding with performance management of social, environmental and financial indicators
  • Efficient and auditable ESG reporting
  • Actionable insights to help decision-makers act across your organization

SAP Product Footprint Manager

SAP Product Footprint Manager helps you calculate the footprint of your products (carbon footprint, water usage, etc.) across their entire lifecycle. 

The tool uses data from your SAP S/4HANA system as well as existing business data (from internal as well as external sources) and combines it with environmental factors to quantify the footprints of your products periodically. Your win: detailed information for disclosure as well as for internal product and process optimisation.

SAP Responsible Design and Production   

SAP Responsible Design and Production is a cloud-native solution that helps you track your process flows and check compliance with regulations on product packaging and plastics. 

It provides the visibility you need to optimize design in order to reduce waste, lower the costs of downstream reuse and recycling and keep pace with obligations, plastic taxes and corporate commitments.
