Executive Summary

This report provides a detailed fact-based comparison of the 23 most prominent environment, health and safety (EHS) platform vendors. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant methodology, our analysis encompassed 2.5-hour live product demonstrations with pre-set scenarios and vendor responses to a 353-point questionnaire covering seven technical, 19 functional and 11 market momentum categories. Verdantix also conducted interviews with more than 15 software users and reviewed the data from our global survey of 302 EHS decision-makers. The EHS software market has, and is currently, undergoing a consolidation driven by rampant private equity interest, due to continued market growth and an expanding market opportunity within the adjacent ESG and sustainability management areas. Among the vendors featured in the Leaders’ Quadrant, seven firms – Benchmark ESG, Cority, Enablon, Intelex, SAI360, Sphera and VelocityEHS – offered robust all-round EHS management capabilities.
