Graf said SAP will cut the amount of paper its prints by 20% by the end of this year and will use tele-presence suites to provide video-conferencing, instead of travelling to meetings.
SAP also plans to reduce the number of flights staff take by 5% in 2009, and 20% by 2012.
Graf said SAP can also play a role in helping its customers lower their carbon emissions. Given the company's strengths in manufacturing, petrochemicals and heavy industry, Graf said SAP's customers account for one-fifth of the world's greenhouse emissions.
"We want to help these customers reduce their carbon emissions," he said.
