The time has come for procurement with purpose

You’re here to make a difference and change the world for the better, working day and night to help shape a successful business that’s also a force for good. A business with purpose. One that creates opportunities for livelihoods, not merely employment. One that builds families, communities, and entire economies, not just products and services. SAP Ariba helps make that possible with transparency deep into your supply chain. 

We help your company look at its suppliers – and at their suppliers and customers – so everyone can see who is doing good, who protects both people and planet, and how far their influence extends. With this level of clarity, you can improve the societal, economic, and environmental impact of your business and every organization and community it touches. 

  • Society: When you know the working conditions of the people who work for your suppliers, you can change those people’s lives.
  • Economy: Helping communities thrive while your business does the same is the best practice there is.
  • Environment: Seeing every source along your supply chain, you can make choices that protect our planet and preserve your resources. 

With SAP Ariba, you can do more than keep the supply chain flowing toward profit. You can procure with purpose.
