“At no other time in history has an organization’s ESG performance been so closely correlated to its share price or its ability to raise capital,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “Over the span of a few short years, ESG has evolved from an optional public relations reporting initiative into an increasingly mandatory, investor-driven reporting requirement. Top results like those found in this new survey further validate that our best-in-class EHS solutions already help customers report on ESG activities with the industry’s leading data collection, calculation and reporting capabilities.”

Among the vendors surveyed, VelocityEHS scored a top two position among the platform players and higher than nearly all other EHS software vendors on the market.

“EHS has never been more relevant to an organization’s bottom line and success than it is today,” said Julian Moffatt, Principal Solutions Strategist, ESG at VelocityEHS. “Rather than replacing EHS, ESG has become the primary vehicle for communicating and elevating the visibility of EHS performance measurements to shareholders, customers, investors, corporate boards, and the C-Suite. Our established ESG thought leadership and significant product investments mean that VelocityEHS will continue to grow with our customers as their ESG programs evolve and mature.”

VelocityEHS will further demonstrate its ESG market leadership at the upcoming ESG Virtual Conference. During the free, one-day event, VelocityEHS professionals and industry experts will come together to share best practices for organizational leaders working to incorporate ESG into their company’s operations and corporate DNA.
