  • The reports are prepared and published just two months after year-end close, a month earlier than in previous years

SAP also announced that the SAP Integrated Report 2016 is now available and accessible online at www.sapintegratedreport.com/. The SAP Integrated Report 2016 discusses the financial and non-financial factors that influence SAP’s performance.

In the reports, SAP reaffirmed its previously published (January 24, 2017) business outlook.

The SAP Integrated Report discusses the company’s social, environmental and financial performance. Many of our non-financial indicators, such as Employee Engagement Index, employee retention, Business Health Culture Index, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, have seen a positive development over the past year. SAP measured the monetary impact on operating profit that these four non-financial KPIs have. You can view this analysis at www.sap.com/integrated-reports/2016/en/strategy/connectivity.html
