Posted on July 11, 2023 | in Accelerate Platform
CHICAGO (July 11, 2023) – VelocityEHS®, the global leader in enterprise EHS & ESG software solutions, today announced that its ESG Solution was named a Product of the Year by Environment + Energy Leader (E+E Leader). The Awards program recognizes excellence in products and projects that deliver significant energy and environmental benefits. The ESG Solution, part of the VelocityEHS Accelerate® Platform, empowers global enterprises to plan, build, and optimize their ESG programs and develop sustainable business strategies by streamlining data collection and reporting.
“This year’s entrants had to surpass an exceptionally high bar to qualify for an award,” said Co-President of E+E Leader Sarah Roberts.
The distinguished panel of judges recognized the VelocityEHS solution for its outstanding contributions to ESG reporting. One judge remarked, “Given the focus on ensuring data management aligns with GRI, SASB, and other external frameworks, this software can serve as a valuable resource for companies engaged in reporting environmental data.” Another judge added, “This platform offers a reporting system and adaptability that enables companies to customize its utilization according to their requirements.”
“The VelocityEHS ESG Solution, delivered on our state-of-the-art AI-driven Accelerate® platform, equips organizations of all sizes to more easily and effectively manage their ESG programs by providing real-time data and actionable insights,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “For example, a large energy company that uses our Carbon Management capabilities to calculate emissions due to electrical, LPG, and fleet fuel consumption is set to reduce its Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 50 percent by 2030. Another large global customer (named by Newsweek as one of America’s Most Responsible Companies) uses our solution to proactively manage stakeholder relations for their overall ESG efforts and recently launched a program to decarbonize and reduce Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions by 15 percent by 2025. This award signifies our commitment and leadership to help our customers navigate their way through complex and evolving ESG requirements.”
