SAP is committed to building regenerative business in a circular economy and supporting the Ellen MacArthur Foundation’s mission to eliminate waste and pollution, circulate materials and regenerate natural systems through innovative business models.
At COP26 in November 2021, SAP launched the first major solution from their Circular Economy program - SAP Responsible Design and Production.
This new solution will provide the foundation for their Regenerative Business mission and establishes a consistent measurement of material use globally. As a result, it will help companies gain better visibility of material flows through their business processes, manage Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) regulations worldwide, prepare for upcoming plastic taxes and optimise material choices. They believe this will create the transparency needed for regulators and NGOs to develop targeted interventions and accelerate public and private sector collaboration to ensure a level playing field for global action on waste and climate.
SAP look forward to hosting you to celebrate the launch of SAP Responsible Design and Production and understand SAP’s Regenerative Business vision. Digital solutions play an important role in the transition to a circular economy and can accelerate the system wide transformation that's needed.
In this launch event for SAP Responsible Design and Production, they’ll be bringing together customers, industry experts, NGOs and partners to discuss what a regenerative future looks like, critical actions for business and the data driven innovations needed to accelerate the transition to a circular economy.
This event is now taking place as an online event, and will be hosted by David Kester (Managing Director DK&A and former CEO of UK Design Council) who supported the original UK Plastic Challenge, where their solution journey began four years ago.
SAP invite you to watch the livestream and participate by sharing your questions and comments. Please note the planned evening reception has been postponed and will be rescheduled later this year.
