17 October 2017
Walldorf and Vienna, 17 October 2017 — SAP SE and the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) today announce the signing of a joint declaration to advance the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and monitor its implementation, in particular in the area of inclusive and sustainable industrialization, by utilizing innovative technologies including analytics, reporting, the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence, blockchain, and others.
The joint initiative will focus on the development of an innovative platform, SAP Digital Boardroom, to monitor, manage, and report on the Sustainable Development Goals and their industry-related targets. “SAP Digital Boardroom allows UNIDO groups to gain visibility across their entire organization, consolidate achievements on the SDGs and document their impact on people’s lives. Through data integration, the solution provides a single source of truth for strategic decisions, and that is critical for success in the fast-paced digital economy,” says Isabella Groegor-Cechowicz, Global General Manager for Public Services, SAP.
This new initiative demonstrates SAP’s commitment to the 17 UN Global Goals for Sustainable Development, which also includes membership of the Global Partnership for Sustainable Development Data (GPSDD) and IMPACT 2030.
“With SAP as a partner, we are making progress under the 2030 Agenda by harnessing the power of new technologies to overcome the digital divide and achieve prosperity for all,” commented Hiroshi Kuniyoshi, Deputy to the Director General of UNIDO.
