Dubai, United Arab Emirates — For the fifth year in a row SAP AG (NYSE: SAP) has been named to the Global 100 list of the most sustainable corporations in the world. Corporate Knights Inc. and international finance and investment advisory firm Innovest Strategic Value Advisors released the annual list on Jan. 28, 2009, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.
