SAP and BT announce a visionary new partnership to show how carbon accounting could be standardised for business customers by piloting the recently launched SAP Sustainability Data Exchange (SDX).
SAP SDX enables BT to collect, trace and share carbon data across its own supplier base, providing unparalleled visibility into the carbon footprint of its business products and services. BT can then share this information directly with business customers when they purchase products through SAP Business Network
. Furthermore, BT can complement this with data-driven insights from its Digital Carbon Calculator
and Carbon Network Dashboard
to help customers optimise their own IT for both carbon and energy.
