Editor's Note:Last month, we debuted a new channel on CSRwire with Noble Profit to focus on short video interviews with key leaders in the sustainability field. These interviews share insights from corporate leaders who are actually creating profitable sustainable business practices and adopting clean tech, dispelling the myth that zero harm costs more.
Through these conversations, Noble Profit will explore the question of value, providing unique insight into today's trends with inventors, investors, sustainable business experts, and thought leaders. This week's interviewee: Jennifer Scholze, Senior Director, Sustainability Solutions Product Safety and Stewardship, SAP.
How can a technology provider help shorten supply chains? Noble Profit chats with SAP's Jennifer Scholze on what the company is doing in collaboration with women farmers in Ghana as part of the Ghana Shea Value Chain Initiative.
The goal of the initiative: to increase the income for women that are harvesting shea nuts by minimizing the number of middle men between them and the purchasers. It's more than software solutions, says Scholze. For SAP, using software for compliance, safety and revenue growth is a vital tool in helping workers in the developing world create sustainable living conditions for themselves.
