Strategic focus: ESG reporting will force firms to consolidate legacy EHS IT systems

Download this report from Verdantix to understand why enterprise-wide ESG disclosures will force companies to move away from a fragmented EHS IT landscape in favor of EHS system consolidation.

What's inside
Organizations have invested in software and digital tools for environment, health, and safety (EHS) for many decades. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, EHS IT landscapes were fragmented because companies would buy EHS systems at a site, divisional, or regional level. In addition, functional and operational groups such as safety managers, product stewardship and compliance experts, environmental engineers, and industrial hygienists would purchase their own niche solutions.

Towards the middle of the 2010s, integrated EHS software platforms became more popular. However, the majority of large enterprises still run an array of new and old EHS IT systems today. Some firms even operate as many as 200 different applications.

This report from independent research firm Verdantix explains why ESG disclosure and reporting requirements will make a fragmented EHS IT landscape unsustainable and force organizations to consolidate EHS systems.
