Executive Summary

These data tables accompany Verdantix Global Corporate Survey 2022: EHS Budgets, Priorities And Tech Preferences which provides insights into the budget forecasts and technology adoption across various industries and geographies to help executives shape their EHS strategies and digital technology initiatives. Verdantix conducted 302 interviews with senior decision-makers in environment, health and safety roles. The data collected through the Verdantix survey also support strategic decision-making and business planning by executives at EHS consulting and technology providers. The 2022 version of the annual global Verdantix EHS survey spanned 31 countries and 25 industries. Of these respondents, 77% represented firms with revenues greater than $1 billion and 66% held role titles of director or above. Respondent data reveal resilient spend in the next 12 months, with very few firms intending to reduce EHS budgets. Verdantix attributes budget increases, in part, to inflationary pressures as firms increase spend in response to rising prices. Secondly, mounting environmental and ESG regulation will shift EHS spend priorities as chemical and hazardous waste compliance and environmental compliance top the list for spend increases. EHS technology adoption will continue to grow across the digital landscape.
