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

This report provides a global benchmark of energy management priorities, budgets and governance based on interviews with 285 decision-makers positioned at an executive level; its findings will help shape corporate decisions on energy and energy management. Corporate energy management is increasingly a centralized, enterprise-wide concern. Although many firms have started to consolidate global energy management decision-making, implementation of strategies is still delegated to local levels – where energy managers struggle to fund projects to meet corporate targets. This report helps energy directors to benchmark their organization’s energy management strategies, investments and priorities across energy management initiatives for the next 12 months. It also helps providers of energy technologies and services to align their business and product plans with market demand across 24 countries and 21 sectors.

In April 2015 EH&S software provider Enviance announced its acquisition of Remedy Interactive, the California-based provider of safety and ergonomics solutions. This report helps both buyers of EH&S software solutions and EH&S software vendors understand the implications the acquisition has for the market. To learn more about the deal and their follow on plans, Verdantix spoke with Enviance CEO David Muse and Remedy Interactive CEO Kim Weiss. Verdantix finds the acquisition will supplement Enviance’s strong platform for environmental management with Remedy Interactive’s safety and ergonomics management expertise and move towards a solution that comprehensively covers EH&S impact areas.

 

 

Voluntary demands for supply chain sustainability data are increasing from multiple stakeholders, and regulatory requirements, such as the SEC conflict minerals ruling, are steadily mounting. For firms with thousands of suppliers dispersed across the globe, the challenge of capturing accurate data across a range of environmental, social, governance and sustainability issues is a daunting prospect. This report provides an independent analysis of the supply chain stewardship market, based on a review of the solutions of 26 software and managed service providers. Verdantix finds that while these solutions are gaining traction with Fortune 500 firms, vendors need to do more to articulate the value to customers of cost reductions, improved supplier risk management and brand benefits gained from implementing supply chain stewardship solutions.
