It is selfish of me to hold onto all of the great things I’ve recently heard about SAP in the sustainabilty space. I’ve captured them all below, I hope you find them as interesting as I have.
- SAP continues relief efforts for Haitians (http://sapbloggerscorner.com/index.php/2011/04/28/relief-efforts-in-haiti-continues).
- SAP again made it into the FTSE4Good Index. Next to the Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes, FTSE4Good is the most important sustainability index to be listed in. It is also the one which is probably hardest to achieve. SAP’s overall score is 61 of 100.
- Rapid Deployment Solution for energy visibility and tracking to be released in Q1 – SAP MII templates for Energy Analysis are already available to customers on SDN. These templates were developed in co-operation with our ecosystem partner RTS Consulting and offer a set of preconfigured best practices for SAP MII 12.1 to support energy visibility and tracking for manufacturing industries.

- SAP is one of only three German companies that are among the 100 most sustainable companies worldwide – Only SAP, Adidas and Henkel are in the “Global 100 Most Sustainable Corporations in the World” ranking which was unveiled at the World Economic Forum in Davos. SAP and Intel have been included continuously in the ranking since its introduction in 2005. The ranking includes 19 Japanese companies, 13 US companies, and 11 UK companies. The survey was initiated by Canadian media company Corporate Knights.
- RheinEnergie, one of the largest municipal energy suppliers in Germany plans to install 30,000 “smart meters” for its customers in the Cologne area by December 2011. At RheinEnergie, for the first time ever, not only electricity but also water and gas consumption will be captured and integrated into business processes. SAP® Advanced Metering Infrastructure (AMI) Integration for Utilities software is the IT infrastructure joining the meters to the business software back end.
