Last weekend software company SAP’s unique approach to sustainability was featured on the season premiere of John Holden’s “The Green Room” on the Discovery Channel. SAP helps its customers, including manufacturers, implement programs to help their companies run more efficiently and sustainably.
Holden highlights SAP’s cutting-edge “Green IT” solutions help companies establish more energy efficient computing operations. SAP Chief Sustainability Officer Peter Graf estimates that Green IT could help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 16 percent.
Holden also notes that SAP’s commitment to sustainability does not stop with its customers. The company has a robust corporate sustainability program which aims to reduce the company’s environmental impact. SAP’s offices have high-efficiency data centers, solar roof panels, a fleet of electric vehicles and charging stations in the employee parking lots.
