The most important and material disclosure is of my employment with SAP. During the course of my job I come into regular contact with SAP stakeholders of all kinds including NGOs, customers, government representatives, customers, partners. I will draw from my daily experience in my writing but I will try to make sure I fully disclose any material relationship I might have as an employee of SAP with the subject matter of my writing to the best of my ability. My goal is to raise awareness of sustainable development issues across the tech sector in an objective and fair way. Any opinions expressed in this blog are entirely my own and not those of my employer or anyone else for that matter. I have no significant financial investments in any other tech companies.
