Are you looking to explore how your SAP digital supply chain landscape can help you achieve your sustainability and ESG goals.
Our latest blog looks at the challenges around achieving supply chain environmental sustainability when running an SAP landscape and shows how you can start to achieve better planet, people and performance outcomes using SAP.
There are several ways you can incorporate your strategic ESG (Environmental, social and governance) goals into your own SAP implementations and projects and put yourself in a strong position to influence your suppliers, engage stakeholders and gain access to immediate data and compliance insights from within the supply chain.
