Executive Summary

This report provides a detailed fact-based comparison of the most prominent digital EHS  technology implementation service vendors. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant  methodology, the analysis comprised two-hour live briefings, desktop research and vendor responses to a 120-point questionnaire covering 24 capability and six market momentum categories. Verdantix also leveraged data from two Verdantix Global Corporate Surveys (see Verdantix Global Corporate Survey: EHS Services Budgets, Preferences And Priorities and Verdantix Global Corporate Survey 2022: EHS Budgets, Priorities And Tech Preferences). Verdantix analysis finds that the EHS digital implementation market has grown in scale and complexity, influenced by a new wave of corporate ESG considerations and significant technological advancements within the  space.  Among the EHS implementation  service vendors discussed in this study, six firms – AECOM, Arcadis, ERM, EY, Jacobs and WSP– demonstrate the most advanced collection of implementation capabilities.
