SAP Reduces 2010 Green House Gas Emissions Despite Double-Digit Revenue Growth

SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) unveiled its preliminary report of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions for 2010. The company’s worldwide GHG emissions for 2010 totaled 430 kilotons, a four percent decrease from the 450 kiloton level of 2009. In its third year of consecutive reductions, SAP has cut GHG emissions by 24 percent from its peak levels in 2007, putting the company well on track to achieve its target of reducing emissions to 2000 levels by 2020.

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.

"SAP’s vision is to help the world run better. And in a better run world, companies perform more profitably and more sustainably," said Peter Graf, chief sustainability officer, SAP AG. "Having just announced double digit company growth, I am proud of the fact that we managed to achieve this growth while further reducing our worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. Thanks to the use of sustainability solutions from SAP, we were able to track and report energy use and emissions quarterly - taking appropriate action throughout the year to actively manage our sustainability performance."

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.

SAP uses the SAP® Carbon Impact OnDemand solution to report greenhouse gas emissions on a quarterly basis. Further automation in the data collection process enables SAP to report its emissions months earlier than previously possible. The company will report in-depth, audited carbon footprint details in the 2010 SAP Sustainability Report, to be issued in spring 2011.
