Business Software Leader SAP Increases Sustainability with New Solar System
When SAP decided to closely tie its focus on increased sustainability with its corporate goals, Cupertino Electric's Energy Alternatives Division was there to help. In 2009, SAP announced an increased strategic focus on sustainability. As part of its focus, SAP committed to an aggressive goal of reducing its carbon footprint by the year 2020.
In order to achieve its sustainability goals, SAP realized that it needed to engage the services of a highly experienced, safety-conscious design/build electrical engineering and construction firm. Cupertino Electric's competitive pricing and prior experience with high-profile projects in the city of Palo Alto made our Energy Alternatives Division the obvious choice.
As a testament to the zero carbon emissions solar PV array installed by our project team, SAP was named the highest-ranking software company in the 2009 Dow Jones Sustainability Indexes.
