Public Policy

SAP has developed trusting relationships with governments worldwide by exploring the potential for information and communications technology (ICT) to spur economic growth, create jobs, and address societal challenges.

SAP engages with governments around the globe on a number of public policy issues, including the creation of reasonable framework conditions for new technologies or business models such as cloud computing, the Internet of Things, and Big Data.

SAP supports global best practices to ensure cybersecurity and the protection of personal data to build trust in digital technologies. SAP favors global policy frameworks and international standards that enable the free flow of data across borders and the free trade of digital products and services.

SAP believes in transparency in the political process. Accordingly, we are registered in the European Transparency Register for interest representatives. In the United States, our company is registered and reports in compliance with the Lobbying Disclosure Act.

Political Contributions

SAP does not support any political parties. Under the laws of the United States, a number of SAP employees continue to exercise their right to create a political action committee (PAC). The SAP America PAC is an independent, registered, and strictly regulated organization that allows eligible employees in the United States to support political candidates at the state and federal level. Consistent with U.S. law, SAP SE exercises no control over or influence on the SAP America PAC. SAP America PAC expenditures are transparent and available on the U.S. Federal Election Commission Web site.
