Executive Summary

This report contains an extract of the Verdantix analysis originally produced in the 2021 edition of the Verdantix Green Quadrant for environment, health and safety (EHS) software (see Verdantix Green Quadrant: EHS Software 2021). To help senior EHS executives identify the best-fit software, this benchmark provides a detailed analysis of capabilities available from assessed vendors across 20 chemicals management assessment criteria. This report finds that two software vendors — Sphera and VelocityEHS — offer the most comprehensive functionality to facilitate chemicals compliance foundations. To ensure maximum benefits, buyers should streamline firm-wide product compliance management systems and consider broader product stewardship solution value propositions.
