Help the World Run Better and Improve People’s Lives

In line with SAP’s purpose to help the world run better and improve people’s lives, SAP has embraced the UN Sustainable Development Goals since their launch in 2015. While we are committed to use our extensive resources and reach across 25 industries to contribute to virtually all of the 17 SDGs, we focus on eight where we believe we can provide the most value and have a material link to our business, namely SDG 3 – Good Health and Well-Being, SDG 4 – Quality Education, SDG 8 – Decent Work and Economic Growth, SDG 9 – Industry, innovation and Infrastructure, SDG 10 – Reduced Inequalities, SDG 12 – Responsible Consumption and Production, SDG 13 – Climate Action and SDG 17 – Partnerships for the Goals.

Together with our customers and partners, we are proud to also help address the other nine SDGs. On this page, we share an overview of some of the most impactful stories and products to showcase our leverage as an enabler and exemplar.
