The EH&S information management project you are nominating must be fully operational and must be able to demonstrate real improvements in EH&S performance and business performance. For example: reduced injury rates, faster data provision to decision-makers or reduced non-compliance costs.
Any project that began in 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016 is eligible.
We will judge the winners based on what the original the project was, the challenges you overcame to achieve it, the scale of the benefits relative to the scale of the organization and how impressive the project is relative to comparable projects submitted in the same industry category.
We may reclassify entries into different industry categories if it is a more appropriate fit given your business activities.
Vendors of EH&S software, product stewardship solutions and consulting services can submit applications based on the work they have done with their customers, but the vendors are responsible for obtaining the necessary permissions to submit those entries. In these cases, the Awards will mention both the customer and the vendor as Award winners. Any vendor communications must reference the Award as: “Through its successful project for CUSTOMER, VENDOR received a Verdantix EH&S Innovation Award.”
We will award at most one winner in each industry category, plus finalists if there were other great entries besides the winner. If there are no worthy entries in an industry category, we won't give an award in that category.
All winners will be announced on March 13, 2017 at the Verdantix EH&S Summit. Winners will be featured in Verdantix blogs and in a press release following the Verdantix Summit as well as receiving an award winner icon to use in marketing communications.
The content of all entries is provided by you on the record and can be quoted in Verdantix research, referenced at the Verdantix Summit and used in other Verdantix materials.
We will block entries that we think are inappropriate, including those containing obscenity or copyright violations.
