00:01 — SAP Chief Marketing and Solutions Officer Julia White recently gave a keynote address at last month’s live Cloud Wars Expo event on the critical nature of sustainability, in what she terms the “greatest challenge of our time.”
00:37 — Sustainability is also the greatest economic opportunity of our time, and will play an increasingly vital role in how companies adopt new processes and solutions. White says 70% of CEOs are currently unable to generate or access accurate sustainability metrics within their businesses.
01:24 — Data on sustainability, emissions, and waste is the only way for leaders to adapt their enterprise to changing sustainability standards; good intentions aren’t enough.
02:22 — In 50 years of operation, SAP has established a strong measure of trust within many companies in a range of different industries, learned about their industry-specific challenges, and tied those needs into the SAP Industry Cloud.
03:20 — White’s focus on sustainability continues a theme seen throughout other Cloud Wars Expo keynotes, using cloud infrastructure and products to address large-scale real-world challenges.
Starting on July 20th, Cloud Wars Expo 2022 sessions will be made available for on-demand viewing. Get your pass here today.
