Emily Martin helped SAP's existing sustainability team create and run analyses on a database of energy efficiency projects.


Emily Martin, an MBA student at the University of North Carolina and a graduate student at Duke University's Nicholas School for the Environment, worked as a Climate Corps fellow at SAP, the world's leading provider of business software solutions. SAP's Sustainability Team asked Martin to help them create a database of energy efficiency projects and their typical financial and environmental returns.


Martin identified trends in corporate energy efficiency investment and areas where SAP could leverage its position in the IT space to help companies manage their energy efficiency investments. Martin also worked to build improved functionality into SAP's Carbon Impact software solution and created a work plan for future functionality improvements. Carbon Impact allows companies to create a proactive strategy for enterprise carbon management and sustainability - including product development, logistics, employee activities, and the entire supply chain.
