Against the backdrop of increasing environmental awareness and legislation, information regarding Product Carbon Footprints and the Corporate Carbon Footprint has become ever more essential.

The Product Carbon Footprint, or CO2 Footprint, is a procedure used to determine the impact of a product on the climate. In addition to carbon dioxide, the Product Carbon Footprint also takes into account the effects of other greenhouse gasses. (CO₂ equivalents).

The Corporate Carbon Footprint is a method used to quantify the total environmental impact of a corporation, including CO₂ equivalents.

SAP Sustainability Footprint Management (SFM) (formerly Product Footprint Management (PFM)) enables the calculation of the Product Carbon Footprint, Corporate Carbon Footprint and emissions caused by transportation.

Benefits of SAP Sustainability Footprint Management

  • Greater transparency and efficiency within supply chain processes
  • No system gaps between the operational SAP system and Sustainability Footprint Management
  • Digitalization of sustainability
  • Identification of potential areas whereby CO2 Footprint can be improved
  • Basis for the development of sustainable product
  • Better transparency for clients and stakeholders
  • Fulfillment of legal obligations for reporting and declaration

With SAP Sustainability Footprint Management, material movements are used in a read-only manner from the S/4HANA material master data. Data from SAP EHS and other data sources can be used in a flexible manner, and emission factors can be assigned. This information is used to automatically determine the carbon footprint of a given product. Further, this determined data can be analyzed and used in other processes, such as supplier evaluation, source determination, or pricing, etc.

SAP Sustainability Footprint Management is a cloud application that runs on the SAP Business Technology Platform.

We prepare results and develop alternatives for implementation, and design target business processes and operative solutions based on SAP Sustainability Footprint Management.

SI PRO brings industry leading best practices and in-house expertise, developed from a history of over 20 years in SAP sustainability projects.

SI PRO has the required knowledge and expertise in the following regulations and standards: Product Carbon Footprint DIN EN ISO 14067, Corporate Carbon DIN EN ISO 14064-1, GHG Greenhouse Gas Protocol, PAS 2050, GHG Greenhouse Gas Protocol Accounting Standard, LCA Life-Cycle-Assessment DIN EN ISO 14040/14044, Climate Neutrality PAS 2060, and ISO 14068 (in progress).

SI PRO has an integrated SAP Sustainability Footprint Management demo system. With our SAP demo and development system, we can demonstrate how requirements can be implemented.

As an SAP-certified consulting company, we advise on and implement SAP Sustainability Footprint Management. By taking part in SAP Partner Enablement, SI PRO consultants have up to date knowledge on SAP Sustainability Footprint Management to meet the changing needs of clients.

As part of the implementation, technical aspects must also be carried out, i.e., the set-up of SAP Sustainability Footprint Management in the SAP Business Technology Platform with integration in S/4HANA. If necessary, integration with older SAP ERP systems and other data objects can also be performed.

After implementation, the new functionalities need to be thoroughly tested. SI PRO can support the creation of appropriate test scenarios as well as their execution.

Efficient and safe work with new functions is most effective when affected users and other relevant persons have been comprehensively trained in them. For this reason, SI Pro offers corresponding system training.
