SAP-BASED SUSTAIN­ABILITY SOLUTIONS

The issue of sustainability is now included in the core business of most industries and companies.

Sustainability, and climate protection in particular, was the main subject of discussion in the World Economic Forum in Davos at the beginning of 2020. It’s also the objective formulated by the European Commission with its New Green Deal.  SAP has presented its Climate 21 initiative.

Investors are increasingly looking to sustainable companies, and significantly more growth can be achieved through sustainable products than conventional ones.

Digitization supports sustainability.

The SAP ERP and S4 HANA solutions provide comprehensive options for implementing sustainability and environmental solutions.

SI PRO has been designing and implementing SAP-based sustainability and environment solutions since 1999.

Sample SAP-based SI PRO projects in the field of sustainability:

Operational manual and automated data collection of air emissions (CO2 or GHG, heavy metals, etc.), water emissions, waste.

Automatic determination of current key figures from operational emissions data.

Solutions ensuring that no products that were manufactured using child labor or conflict minerals are purchased or utilized in the supply chain.

Integration of sustainability in the product development process and packaging development process.

Integration of sustainability in purchasing, sales and logistical processes, e.g. CO2 footprint of products and services.

Recycling administration of packaging, electronic scrap, and batteries.

Integration of sustainability costs in the fields of controlling and finance.

Dealing with hazardous substances responsibly.

Support with swift treatment of poisoning in children and adults.

Sustainability reporting in the areas of air emissions, water emissions, waste, energy, accidents, and occupational medicine. Annual report on financial statements and regular reporting on affiliated companies, business units, countries, sites, plants, and installations.

Automated sustainability reporting according to GRI, CDP, DJSI etc.

IT-supported collection and tracking of activities to improve the sustainability situation.

SI PRO is a supporting member of the UN Global Compact initiative and strives to operate in a way that is as sustainable as possible. For example, we use green electricity, rail cards for consultants, purchase sustainable products for office requirements, etc. The eco-efficiency of SI PRO is continuously tracked and visualized with an online monitoring function.

ADDITIONAL SI PRO AREAS IN THE FIELD OF SAP SUSTAIN­ABILITY

SI PRO Consulting Services SAP Sustainability

SI PRO supports your planning, implementation and support of your SAP sustainability solution.

Typically we will conduct analyses for your sustainability solution according to your requirements. Examples of such analyses are business process analyses or analyses of environmental, social and conformity data, products and business partners in the supply chain processes.

We edit results and develop alternatives for implementation and To-Be processes and operational solutions for sustainability.

SI PRO usually applies best practice knowhow from more than 20 years experience in SAP sustainability projects. We can demonstrate within our SAP demo and development systems how requirements can be met.

A wide variety of necessary data are already available within SAP systems. SI PRO’s consultants can make this data available for your integrates sustainability project.

We advise and implement your SAP sustainability solution as a certified SAP consulting company.

SI PRO supports classic process models as well as agile methods according to customer requirements.

Technical implementation takes place as part of the implementation, i.e. customizing of SAP Standard Software. When necessary additional developments, customer specific reporting, mobile solutions and add-ons can be designed and implemented. Oftentimes interfaces to Non-SAP systems need to be realized within sustainability projects.

In general, the system needs testing after implementation. SI PRO can provide support during testing by conducting the tests as well as creating suitable test scenarios.

Affected users as well as other affected persons work most efficient and safe with those new functions when a comprehensive training took place. SI PRO offers according trainings.

For a successful implementation of sustainability solutions it is important to include an according training not only for “power users” but also for “occasional users”. Web-based trainings have proven to be an efficient training form for occasional users and the support of internal communication.

Once the solution has gone live, SI PRO continues to support its customers with additional services (such as rollout) and application and technical support. We also offer service level agreements with response times depending on the priority and business impact of the issue.
