Key SAP PFM Capabilities

Sustainability is a challenge for the world and, therefore, for every single company. Without a healthy planet, there is no basis for continuity, long-term profit, and growth. One-fifth of the world’s carbon emissions comes from supply chains, which opens an immediate need for action.

SAP PFM can calculate footprints for any stage in the value chain, such as logistics, manufacturing, human resource management, technology development, and procurement. By analyzing the data, this solution can help companies manage their environmental impact.


Data Acquisition

The system collects master data from your operational business processes and SAP business applications, reusing data that is already available and validated. Calculate the footprints for each of your products by using the data of all the emissions that occur within your company and how they contribute to your final products.


Emission Factors Management

SAP PFM imports emission factors from product lifecycle assessment data to calculate footprints at scale across the entire product inventory. For now, data is either retrieved from SAP Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) database or reused from information provided by the LCA database. Ultimately, the plan is to use data provided directly from the suppliers.


Footprint Calculation

Using a pre-configured footprint calculation template, you can define the products to add to the calculation. This pairs each product with its emission factor (both purchased materials and raw materials for production), thus providing an overview of the carbon emission during a product lifecycle. SAP PFM also provides a built-in governmental carbon price calculation for better budgeting and planning.


Footprint Analytics

You can also use the quick filters available as a drop-down list to view the footprint results for a specific state. Each position in the table is based on the status of added semantic colors to individual footprint results to highlight their importance. The calculated footprints are integrated back into the end-to-end processes to visualize the pain points.

Footprint Integration

As the calculated footprints are integrated into the core processes of SAP S/4HANA and SAP S/4HANA Cloud, you can monitor and visualize the KPIs for sustainability improvement. Such a targeted control allows for significant resource savings and increased transparency.
