SAP India and TERI Join Forces for India’s Sustainable Development Goals 

SAP India and TERI – SAP India and The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today to help India’s greater sustainability strategy. Across important industries, societies, and government, the initiative will strive for sustainability in all aspects of business, service delivery, and governance. 
 
According to recent reports, India’s top 250 corporations account for 36% of the country’s total greenhouse gas emissions. With climate change posing a serious threat to life on Earth, SAP and TERI have teamed up to tackle climate change and secure a sustainable future. To accomplish sustainability, the partnership will combine TERI’s domain expertise in sustainability, specifically in the Energy and Resources sectors, with SAP India’s technologies to facilitate business processes, collaboration with value chains, tracking, and reporting capabilities.

Key focus areas of SAP India and TERI partnership will include:

Climate Change Education: To guide action and assist India’s greater environmental strategy. 
 
By advancing climate change objectives across industries and assisting their transition to a low-carbon economy, we can help them achieve their goals. 
 
Resources and Sustainability Audit: to work together to provide sector-specific auditing and efficiency-improvement services and advice. 
 
Enabling industries to take action by reporting and analyzing sustainability in accordance with a global framework for the benefit of the environment, society, and economy

Impact on Policy 

Support the government in making informed sustainability-related policy decisions using a data-driven approach that also aids in monitoring the impact based on NDC and SDG achievements. 
 
Build a Net-Zero Path: Through the creation of case studies, success stories, and whitepapers, major industries such as energy, waste management, government, and others may share their knowledge and best practices. 
 
“India is the world’s fourth-largest emitter of carbon dioxide, and we must act now to guarantee the next generation has a better future,” said Kulmeet Bawa, President, and Managing Director, SAP Indian Subcontinent. We also recognize that sustainability is a team sport, and that creating a thriving ecosystem is the most effective way to meet our goal of being Net-Zero. SAP, in collaboration with TERI, is dedicated to joining forces to help India achieve its goal of becoming a carbon-neutral nation by 2030.” 
  
“It is the commitment of every investment in the nation to guarantee that their undertakings are dealt with sustainably. 
 
It’s heartening to see SAP India’s efforts to support not only the company’s but also the country’s long-term progress. “We can only mitigate the impact of climate change and bring about meaningful, impactful solutions if we work together as a nation,” stated Dr. Vibha Dhawan, Director General, TERI.
