Episode 37: Lindsey Rowe – SAP – How to embed sustainability into your business (and future-proof your growth)


Businesses once had to choose between profitability and sustainability.

Today the two go hand in hand.

From securing investment to attracting employees and customers, sustainability now has a major impact on the success of a business and on its future.

Studies show that while 90% of executives think sustainability is important only 60% of companies have a sustainability strategy.

In this week’s episode of AIBF Business Talk, Elaine spoke to Lindsey Rowe, Head of Purpose Programmes & Sustainability at SAP about the impact a strong sustainability policy can have on a business.

Listed at No.1 on the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for more than 15 years, SAP believes that together we can reimagine a world where profit is generated by sustainable practices. A world where we put ‘Eco’ in Economics.

SAP helps to create Supply Chain Economics, Consumer Economics, and Human Economics to enable a future with zero emissions, zero waste, and zero inequality.

The groundbreaking software solutions organisation are the headline sponsor of the 6th Annual All-Ireland Business Summit and the AIBF is proud to be associated with such a progressive, ethical company.
