SAP's purpose is to help the world run better and improve people's lives with sustainability at the core. Our objective is to create a positive economic, environmental, and social impact worldwide within planetary boundaries. We bring this to life by providing products and services that meet the sustainability challenges and opportunities of our customers and leading by example in our own sustainable business operations and practices.

Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategy puts SAP's purpose to help the world run better and improve people's lives into action. The accelerated pace of how innovation and technology advance impacts people, organisations, and communities globally. As a result, the competencies and skills needed for people and businesses to succeed in today's digital world are rapidly changing.

That's why SAP CSR tackles issues including the access, adoption, and application of 21st century skills for under-resourced people, communities, and nations, and the acceleration of social enterprises through innovation, adoption of organisational best practices, and market development. SAP CSR has three focus areas that create equitable access to economic opportunity, quality education & employment, and to the green & circular economy.

They focus primarily on youth, under-resourced communities and social innovators in three focus areas:

  • Accelerate Social Business
