Innovation and education belong to all of us. Yet, with the pandemic, rapid climate change, and other mounting inequalities, equitable access to opportunities does not exist. The SAP Corporate Social Responsibility team is working toward ensuring an inclusive recovery and equal opportunities for all.
To power equitable access to economic opportunity, education and employment, and a circular economy, the SAP Corporate Social Responsibility (SAP CSR) team focuses on accelerating social business, building future skills, and collaborating for sustainability. Our goal is to ensure everyone can take part in and benefit from today’s digital world.
Social enterprises are the catalysts for positive change, serving the world’s most vulnerable people and ecosystems. For more than a decade, SAP CSR has invested in the growth of this sector. We provide financial and nonfinancial support, as well as market access and development, to social businesses to accelerate their ability to drive sustainable global impact.
SAP’s education initiatives help people obtain the relevant twenty-first century skills to thrive and secure decent, meaningful work – including entrepreneurial pursuits – in a digital world. In 2021, our digital skills and coding programs trained more than 119,000 teachers and engaged 3.5 million young people across more than 70 countries.
94% of SAP employees acknowledge the importance of pursuing purpose and sustainability. SAP CSR empowers them to take action on causes they care about. In 2021, more than 20,000 SAP employees engaged in volunteerism and learning experiences promoting SAP’s commitment to create positive economic, social, and environmental impact within planetary boundaries. Collectively, they dedicated more than 107,000 volunteer hours across the globe.
