Sustainability lies at the heart of SAP’s vision. It covers renewable fuel sources, reducing carbon emissions, protecting environments, and keeping the delicate ecosystems of our planet in balance while driving innovation and not compromising our way of life. Circular Economy is a way to design, make, and use resources within planetary boundaries by shifting to a system that designs out waste and pollution.
