NEW YORK – April 18, 2017. Twenty-two corporations and government organizations have been selected as finalists for the prestigious Verdantix 2017 EH&S Innovation Awards.

Winners of the 2016 EH&S Innovation Awards were Archer Daniels Midland, Harley Davidson, Keller Group, Repsol, Roanoke, Smith & Nephew, Southern California Edison, and The Cleveland Clinic.

“EH&S leaders are implementing a broader range of innovative technologies than ever before,” stated David Metcalfe, Verdantix CEO and chairman of the awards judging panel. “Mobile safety apps, drones for hazardous site inspections and digital wearables now complement enterprise EH&S software and product stewardship tools. It’s clear that the internet of things is beginning to impact the way EH&S managers think about strengthening environmental management systems and improving safety metrics. That’s an entirely new trend.”
