Executive Summary

The Verdantix Global EH&S Leaders Survey 2016: Budgets and Priorities Data Tables provides a global benchmark of environmental, health and safety management priorities, budgets and governance based on interviews with 301 EH&S decision-makers with responsibilities for corporate-wide EH&S management strategies and initiatives. The annual revenues of responding firms were at least $250 million, with 74% of the 301 firms having revenues greater than $1 billion, representing 17 industries and 15 geographies. This global EH&S survey provides hard data against which EH&S leaders can benchmark their spending plans and priorities for 2016/17. The data set also provides unique insights into governance and spending patterns for firms supplying products and services such as consulting and software.

The file contains data collected through the Verdantix Global EH&S Leaders Survey 2016 with 301 decision-makers and buyers segmented by region and industry group. Verdantix clients should use this data with the report “Global EH&S Leaders Survey 2016: Budgets And Priorities” for context and to understand the scope of the study.

The 301 interviews were conducted by telephone. For quality control, we carefully screened all respondents and ensured we only spoke to individuals directly involved in decisions that relate to environmental, health and safety or the purchase of EH&S software and services.
