SAP United Kingdom and Ireland Corporate Social Responsibility

SAP approaches corporate social responsibility (CSR) strategically – in order to ensure a sustainable future for society, our customers, and our company. By focusing our talent, technology, and capital on education and entrepreneurship, we strive to enact positive social change through economic growth, job creation, innovation, and community.

SAP United Kingdom and Ireland Corporate Social Responsibility

SAP recognises and embraces its commitment to the communities in which we operate in the United Kingdom and Ireland. We believe the private sector plays a vital role in creating a level playing field, driving innovation and building an environment that enhances education and entrepreneurship to foster economic growth.

Our social investment strategy is based on our vision to help the world run better and improving people's lives.

Our approach is driven by four core principles:


Create social impact. Make strategic social investments that have a lasting benefit on society.

Leverage our core expertise. Utilise our technology and talent to help find solutions to social issues.

Generate lasting impact on SAP. Align approach to support our market and people strategy.

Engage multiple stakeholders. Drive innovation through a multi-faceted dialogue with internal and external stakeholders.


SAP Volunteerism

In addition to specific national and local programs, SAP encourages and supports employee volunteerism year-round. In this regard, we partner with several different Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs) and come together to create positive social change in our communities through volunteering in the United Kingdom and Ireland. Our signature volunteering initiative is our Month of Service held in October of every year, where more than 150 projects are executed across the country aligned to our areas of focus. Thousands of SAP employees in the UKI participate in our Month of Service, along with several partners and customers in some cities.

SAP also recognises that our senior executives are excellent ambassadors for SAP, and we encourage them to lend their management expertise to non-profit organisations as board members. The Executive Community Leadership Program facilitates and supports the service of SAP executives on non-profit boards.

Synergy for Positive Social Change

SAP's social investment in the United Kingdom and Ireland supports a wide range of initiatives grant making to higher learning. The program demonstrates how incorporating community stakeholders into our business network not only supports corporate goals and responsibility, but also encourages non-profit organisations to promote social change in a positive and sustainable way.

Modern Slavery Act 2015

SAP (UK) Limited (“SAP”) is committed to ensuring that it understands the issues addressed by the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (“MSA 2015”) and takes appropriate measures to stay compliant with the MSA 2015, ensuring that no modern slavery exists within SAP or its supply chains.

SAP’s ultimate parent company (SAP SE) is headquartered in Germany with offices across the globe, including the UK. In ensuring SAP’s adherence to the MSA 2015 at all times, SAP has a number of teams working to ensure SAP conducts business well within the realms of the MSA 2015. In addition to this, SAP feels it is every employee’s personal responsibility to help SAP remain compliant with the MSA 2015, and so SAP invests time and resource into ensuring its employees are kept updated on this area of law. SAP focusses attention on this from the point of on-boarding in order to keep this matter fresh in its employees’ minds,providing information on its internal and external website.

SAP has published this statement to ensure that its employees and suppliers, both current and prospective are able to understand the importance of complying withthe MSA 2015 and therefore allow SAP to comply at all times. SAP’s own supplier contracts contain modern slavery language, attempting to build this way of working into the very contractual relationship between the parties to keep modern slavery away from SAP’s doors and its supply chain. In addition to the foregoing, since 2000 SAP has been committed to carrying out business in line with the UN Compact, committed to the highest upholding of human rights, labour rights, environmental protection and anti-corruption action.

In the event you discover any potential breach of the MSA 2015, please reach out to the Ombudsperson on SAP Global Ombudsperson and this will be dealt with as soon as reasonably practicable.
