SAP SE, an application software company, announced the availability of SAP Product Footprint Management, a solution that lets companies calculate carbon footprints for their products and improve sustainability across their supply chain. It considers the entire product lifecycle and helps companies disclose their products’ environmental footprints to regulators.
SAP Product Footprint Management is part of a new portfolio of sustainability-specific business applications that deliver transparency and measurement capabilities, allowing companies to move toward lower carbon emissions and more sustainable operations.
“Sustainability goals are increasingly as important to business success as financial goals,” said Thomas Saueressig, member of the executive board of SAP SE and responsible for SAP product engineering. “When companies embed emissions data into underlying business processes, leaders can drive real change by making conscious decisions across the entire value chain. That is what scales the transition to low emission pathways, and SAP is uniquely positioned to drive this change throughout collaborative, intelligent and sustainable business networks.”
