The availability of the CHOOOSE Climate App on the SAP Concur App Center follows the latest announcement of a partnership between leading travel and expense management services provider SAP Concur and Oslo-based climate-focused technology company CHOOOSE.
The CHOOOSE Climate App is one of the first solution extensions built on the SAP Business Technology Platform (SAP BTP) that leverages the SAP Fiori user experience (UX) for the SAP Concur portfolio. The SAP Concur App Center provides over 270 partner solutions that connect to and enhance SAP Concur products. These applications allow organizations to optimize their travel and expense management programs and provide additional value to customers.
CHOOOSE Chief Executive Officer Andreas Slettvoll is thrilled to reveal that the company’s Climate App has been dubbed as one of the first SAP Concur Endorsed Apps. SAP Concur Endorsed Apps are a category of applications that are only available to partners who have demonstrated client success or who operate within areas that are expanding quickly.
Slettvoll said that they strive to ensure that everyone has access to resources related to climate action. According to him, the integration of the CHOOOSE Climate App with Concur Travel and Concur TripLink can make a major contribution to the acceleration of accessibility of climate solutions that are working to cut travel emissions globally.
“The integration enables companies worldwide to measure, reduce, and manage their travel-related CO2 emissions, bringing us one step closer to the net-zero society we are all working to achieve,” Slettvoll further added.
Meanwhile, Peter Maier, President of Industries and Customer Advisory at SAP, stated that companies who make use of SAP Concur solutions and that are now undergoing the process of becoming net-zero can measure and compensate for their travel-related carbon emissions by using the cutting-edge CHOOOSE Climate App.
Launching the CHOOOSE Climate App on the SAP Concur App Center
CHOOOSE is a technology company based in Oslo, Norway, consisting of entrepreneurs, engineers, and climate specialists. It aims to accelerate the adoption of climate solutions across a number of diverse technologies — including nature-based options, carbon removal, and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) — with the help of its network of partners and individual supporters.
When Concur Travel and Concur TripLink are integrated with the CHOOOSE Climate App, users will be able to gain access to rich content that allows them to track and learn about the various climate solutions and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that these solutions tackle for the purposes of Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) reporting and communication.
In an article, Pierre-Emmanuel Tetaz, EMEA Senior Vice President & General Manager at SAP Concur, explained that there is more demand than ever before from customers, stakeholders, and senior managers for businesses to produce sustainable solutions. He believes that CHOOOSE makes it possible for organizations to easily and simply include climate action into their business travel programs.
Tetaz went on to say that the Norwegian climate-tech firm helps in providing travel managers with the tools necessary to make environmentally responsible decisions while also providing a single, centralized platform from which to measure, monitor, reduce, and manage carbon emissions. Further commenting on the latest SAP Concur partnership with CHOOOSE, he concluded:
“We are committed to helping our customers adapt to the new world, with SAP Concur tools that enable them to reinvent and transform their organization.”
