SAP Australia and New Zealand Corporate Social Responsibility

SAP recognises and embraces its commitment to the communities in which we operate in Australia and New Zealand. 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.

Our approach is driven by four core principles:

Create social impact. Make strategic social investments that have a lasting benefit on society.

Leverage our core expertise. Utilise our technology and talent to help find solutions to social issues.

Generate lasting impact on SAP. Align approach to support our market and people strategy.

Engage multiple stakeholders. Drive innovation through a multi-faceted dialogue with internal and external stakeholders.

SAP Volunteerism

In addition to specific national and local programs, SAP encourages and supports employee volunteerism year-round. In this regard, we partner with not-for-profit organisations and come together to create positive social change in our communities through volunteering in Australia and New Zealand. Hundreds of SAP employees in Australia and New Zealand participate in various work experience and education-focused programs together with our customers and partners.

SAP also recognises that our senior executives are excellent ambassadors for SAP, and we encourage them to lend their management expertise to not-for-profit organisations as board members.

Community Engagement at SAP ANZ

SAP is passionate about Australia’s future, and we’re committed to solving two wicked problems: Australia’s digital skills gap and youth unemployment. We partner strategically with not-for-profits who focus on not just preparing but inspiring Australia’s youth for the careers of tomorrow.  

The Smith Family

The Smith Family is a national children's charity helping disadvantaged Australian children to get the most out of their education, so they can create better futures for themselves.

Young ICT Explorers

Young ICT Explorers is a non-profit competition, which has been created by SAP to encourage school students to create their best Information and Communication Technology (ICT) related projects.  

Graeme Dingle Foundation

The Graeme Dingle Foundation (previously known as the Foundation for Youth Development) was co-founded 21 years ago by Graeme Dingle and Jo-anne Wilkinson. The charity’s objective is to ‘transform young lives forever’ by investing in school-based programmes (KiwiCan, Project K, Stars, Career Navigator and MYND) for Kiwis aged 5-18 years old and  aims to change the lives of 50,000 young New Zealanders every year by 2025.

Synergy for Positive Social Change

The program demonstrates how incorporating community stakeholders into our business network not only supports corporate goals and responsibility, but also encourages not-for-profit organisations to promote social change in a positive and sustainable way.
