Using its own software to measure, report and reduce its carbon footprint, SAP can attribute the emissions decrease to a variety of efforts and investments in energy and carbon efficiency projects. Contributing factors to the company’s footprint reduction also include changes in employees’ commuting practices and the purchase of renewable energy.
The year 2010 was the first in which SAP used its sustainability reporting and analytics solutions to track GHG emissions quarterly (Q1: 106 ktons, Q2: 109 ktons, Q3: 112 ktons, Q4: 103 ktons). In line with industry best practices, SAP re-baselined its emissions in 2010 and included more greenhouse gases like nitrogen oxide, methane and hydro fluorocarbons into its emissions accounting. Additionally, SAP adjusted the accounting of carbon emissions caused by electricity use to more precisely reflect the energy mix in regional grids.
