Independent Analyst Firm For Energy, EH&S & Sustainability Research

The Verdantix Smart Grid Deal Tracker helps suppliers and customers of smart grid solutions answer questions such as: What smart grid solutions are my peers implementing?; How does the solution set vary by geography?; Which vendors are active in this space?; What partnerships have been formed?; and What are the typical investment levels? Data is captured from daily reviews of public sources such as main supplier websites, the trade press and general media channels.




This report helps Heads of EH&S understand the environmental strategies, governance approaches, budget allocations, spending trends, and priorities of firms in North America. We interviewed 60 EH&S leaders from firms with revenues of at least $250 million based in Canada and the US. The decentralized approach to EH&S governance in North America results in Canadian and US firms having narrower responsibilities than their European counterparts. Verdantix found that improving compliance and EH&S management top the agenda for North American firms. 



During the last three years Microsoft has enhanced its sustainability performance through a number of initiatives, such as implementing an internal carbon fee, using renewable energy for data centres, and applying a responsible sourcing strategy. This case study is one in a series of Verdantix reports that analyses corporate sustainability strategies and provides Chief Sustainability Officers and VPs of Sustainability with an independent analysis of Microsoft’s corporate sustainability strategy.
