SAP Supports Sustainable Growth in Emerging Economies

For SAP, sustainability means creating sustainable economies around the world. SAP CSR invests talent, technology and capital in all countries where SAP is present, with a particular focus on emerging economies like South Africa, Brazil, India and China. And as we invest, we take a top-down and bottom-up approach. By providing education to underserved youth and supporting local entrepreneurs, we believe will help ensure that emerging economies can independently sustain growth in the long term. SAP CSR is fully aligned with SAP’s business strategy, supporting both global and regional priorities through partnerships with leading in-country development organizations.
