SAP Joins Collective Action to Create a Cleaner Ocean by 2030 (01/21/20)
In the SAP + Qualtrics Global Study of Public Opinion, 'Toward a More Sustainable World', of the 10,501 people surveyed, they found that 78% of people believe that the government should do more to protect the environment even if it may harm businesses. They also found that people in North American and Western Europe are most concerned with the affect that plastics have on the Ocean. 30% of those surveyed from North America stated that this was their main concern among seven other options such as climate change or littering. Results like this are what drove SAP to get involved in this mission.
SAP updated Its Plastics Cloud to help companies in the industry make decisions based off of analytics on materials and environments. The platform allows businesses to stay up to date with policies and guidelines regarding global standards in the packaging industry and help them make decisions in changing materials and practices to create a better customer experience through sustainability. At the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, SAP along with The Coca-Cola Company, The Ellen MacArthur Foundation and World Wildlife Fund discussed their collaboration in reducing the amount of plastic waste in the ocean.
