This report outlines how the EHS landscape is evolving to encompass additional elements to support business functions. Quality management systems are valuable platforms for firms to manage their assets to ensure process efficacy and reduce risk. The coupling of EHS and quality is not always conducted explicitly within a centralized platform, but due to the similar tools required, firms are already tying these processes together. The level of EHS and quality integration can vary, depending on the firm and type of industry. The uptake of a synergistic process can also depend on the relative importance of regulation and compliance within a sector. Verdantix finds that all firms have some aspect of EHS and quality requirements, and that quality processes can bring intrinsic benefits across their value chains.
