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.
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.
Synergy for Positive Social Change
SAP's social investment in the United States and Canada supports a wide range of initiatives grant making to higher learning. The program demonstrates how incorporating community stakeholders into our business network not only supports corporate goals and responsibility, but also encourages nonprofit organizations to promote social change in a positive and sustainable way.
