Green Quadrant establishes Enablon as a Leader for data management, net zero implementation, and more
August 8, 2022 – Top scores in data management and net zero implementation have landed Wolters Kluwer’s Enablon as a Leader in the newly-launched Green Quadrant: Enterprise Carbon Management Software 2022 report by the independent research firm Verdantix, which compared and analyzed offerings from 15 vendors.
“We believe Enablon should be shortlisted by multinational enterprise firms seeking unified operational risk, EHS, and carbon management, and by asset-intensive sectors wanting to strengthen real-time, cross functional visibility and risk controls,” says Jessica Pransky, Principal Analyst, Verdantix. “Customers seeking to use one platform for their GRC, EHS, and carbon management should include Enablon on their shortlist.”
Enablon is a global leader in Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG); Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance (GRC); Environment, Health, Safety, and Quality (EHSQ); and Operational Risk Management (ORM) software solutions. Verdantix is an independent research and consulting firm with expertise in digital strategies for Environment, Health & Safety, ESG & Sustainability, Operational Excellence, Smart Buildings, And Net Zero & Climate Risk.
In the new report, Enablon’s comprehensive and robust platform received top scores for its capabilities in data management, data modeling (Scope 1), and net zero implementation, and among the highest scores for carbon calculation and carbon accounting. Additionally, Enablon was recognized for its robust market presence, with the highest overall score in user adoption.
The Green Quadrant also validated Enablon’s strong market momentum – driven by its partnerships, rapidly growing customer base, and resources as a part of Wolters Kluwer, the €4.6 billion software and information solutions company.
“Organizations today are facing mounting pressure from stakeholders to identify and address climate risks and reach net zero. That means there’s a big need and demand for carbon management software,” says Rob Davis, Vice President of Product Management at Wolters Kluwer Enablon. “We’re honored that Verdantix recognized us as a Leader in its new benchmark report. This validates our market-leading, innovative technology and integrated software solutions that are empowering our customers to be more responsible, productive, and safe.”
Carbon calculation and data modeling
Enablon scored highly on its carbon emissions calculation engine and the highest on its Scope 1 data modeling functionalities, making it a Leader in the category.
Verdantix noted that with its powerful carbon calculation engine, Enablon’s platform can calculate Scope 1 emissions down to the individual source or process unit in near real-time, giving companies accurate and timely insights to reduce their carbon emissions.
Enablon received one of the highest scores in its competitive set for its carbon accounting methodologies, citing the strength of its GHG Management module – which integrates key global greenhouse gas (GHG) standards such as CDP for Scope 1, Scope 2, and Scope 3 GHG reporting – as well as its ability to capture health and safety incidents that have environmental impacts.
Net zero program implementation
Verdantix also rated Enablon the highest in net zero program implementation, which has become increasingly important as more firms adopt net zero plans to show the credibility of their carbon emission reduction efforts.
Adds Davis: “We know that organizations are looking to reduce carbon emissions and need easy-to-use software solutions in order to address key requirements amid today’s evolving landscape.”
Verdantix defined the evaluation criteria for the Green Quadrant carbon management software study using a combination of interviews with corporate managers, desk research, discussions with multiple customers and staff expertise. In full, this year’s Green Quadrant analysis compares offerings from 15 software firms using a 103-point questionnaire covering 17 categories of capabilities and 10 categories of market momentum.
