SAP approaches corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategically – in order to ensure a sustainable future for society, our customers, and our company. By focusing our talent, technology, and capital on education and entrepreneurship, we strive to enact positive social change through economic growth, job creation, innovation, and community.
SAP North America Corporate Social Responsibility
SAP recognizes and embraces its commitment to the communities in which we operate in the United States and Canada. We believe the private sector plays a vital role in creating a level playing field, driving innovation and building an environment that enhances education and entrepreneurship to foster economic growth.
Our social investment strategy is based on our vision to help the world run better and improving people's lives.
For 2017, we will focus on aligning with programs and nonprofit partners concentrating on computer science education and building a diverse workforce. To achieve this goal, we believe STEM education, an entrepreneurial mindset and passion for design are crucial for the exploration of technology studies and technology career pathways.
In addition to specific national and local programs, SAP encourages and supports employee volunteerism year-round. In this regard, we partner with several different Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and come together to create positive social change in our communities through volunteering in the United States and Canada. Our signature volunteering initiative is our Month of Service held in October of every year, where more than 300 projects are executed across North America. Thousands of employees in the US and Canada participate in our Month of Service, along with several partners and customers in some cities.
