Chicago (December 16, 2021) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environmental, health, safety (EHS) and environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) software, is proud to announce it earned a silver level of recognition for its corporate social responsibility and business sustainability from EcoVadis, the world's most trusted provider of business sustainability ratings, intelligence and collaborative performance improvement tools for global supply chains. The recognition places VelocityEHS in the top 25 percent of all companies rated by EcoVadis, and in the top 14 percent in its industry sector.
“VelocityEHS participation in the EcoVadis assessment and rating is a clear acknowledgement of our success and deep commitment to responsible, sustainable growth,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “Doing right by employees, customers and in the local communities we operate in is more important than ever. As we plan for the future, we’re prioritizing sustainability both within our company operations and through our software solutions to ensure a greater positive impact on the environment.”
