In a world where sustainability is no longer a choice but a necessity, businesses must adapt swiftly to changing demands. SAP developed the SAP Sustainability Control Tower, a dynamic solution that blends financial and sustainability metrics to guide and monitor your journey towards a greener future.

In an era defined by climate change awareness and a growing emphasis on environmental, social, and governance (ESG) goals, businesses face unprecedented pressure to operate sustainably and responsibly. Consumers demand eco-friendly products, governments enforce increasingly stringent  regulations, and global sustainability objectives set the tone for the future. A Deloitte survey in 2021 revealed that younger generations seek employment with companies that prioritize more than just profit, further underscoring the significance of sustainability.

Yet, the path to sustainability is not without its challenges. Many companies grapple with fragmented and competing reporting  frameworks, hindering their global operations and impacting the economy. The International Federation of Accountants reported this issue as early as 2018. It's evident that businesses need a comprehensive solution to navigate these challenges efficiently.

Enter the SAP Sustainability Control Tower. This innovative solution addresses the challenges of fragmented financial reporting by offering tools to improve sustainability metrics alongside revenue and operational results. It empowers your organization to transition to low-carbon business products and processes efficiently.

Decision-makers can now consider both costs and greenhouse gas emissions when optimizing processes. Imagine a Chief Financial Officer calculating the environmental and societal impact of a business activity, managing conflicts and tradeoffs using a common currency. With SAP Sustainability Control Tower, this becomes a reality.

SAP Sustainability Control Tower empowers businesses to fully embrace sustainability. It enables you to set and monitor sustainability ambitions, align with global environmental goals, and thrive in an increasingly eco-conscious world. With SAP's expertise and unwavering commitment to sustainability, your business can embark on a journey towards a more prosperous and responsible future. Don't miss this opportunity to lead your industry towards a brighter, more sustainable tomorrow.
