"The new EC Solution is just a small part of SAP's larger commitment to helping organisations adopt sustainable business practices through innovative technologies and business processes."
Goehring said the EC solution has already been successfully implemented in businesses overseas in the mining, manufacturing and energy sectors.
He said other green IT software solutions include SAP Recycling Administration (REA), which supports compliance with the Waste on Electronics and Electronic Equipment directive (WEEE), and Smart Meters, which collect and analyse data for energy usage profiling in real time.
The company has also launched an internal campaign, sGreen, with the goal of launching an environmental policy that defines global roles and responsibilities.
SAP is a member of the Carbon Disclosure Project, a voluntary public disclosure of known carbon footprint, and the Combat Climate Change (3C) initiative.
