SAP Highlights Financial, Sustainability Performance in 2012 Integrated Report

SAP AG today announced the SAP Integrated Report 2012, its first report that brings together the information usually shared in an annual report with the information normally contained in a sustainability report.

SAP AG today announced the SAP Integrated Report 2012, its first report that brings together the information usually shared in an annual report with the information normally contained in a sustainability report. By combining the reports into a single online document, the software giant is highlighting the connections between its financial and non-financial performance. The integrated report is helping the company demonstrate its evolution from having a “sustainability strategy” to making its corporate strategy more sustainable.

Highlights of the report include:

  • Connecting financial and non-financial performance: The integrated approach allows the company to highlight the dependencies between financial and non-financial performance more easily.
  • Innovation stories: They highlight why innovation matters to SAP customers and employees and how SAP solutions help drive sustainable growth.
  • Thought leadership: The report introduces a refined carbon reduction strategy and an environmental data quality rating.
  • Interactivity: Twitter and polls are integrated into the report, which allows people to engage directly with SAP.

The report complies with all accounting and disclosure standards applicable to SAP and meets the GRI application level A+ (confirmed by GRI). For the first time, SAP tagged the sustainability data with the GRI XBRL taxonomy.

Last fall, SAP was named a "Leader" in Brandlogic and CRD Analytics' 2012 Sustainability Leadership Report, referring to companies it deemed effective at both demonstrating and communicating sustainability to its stakeholders.
