Executive Summary

This report provides unique insights to help commercial leaders at software vendors understand how frequently EHS and quality are combined in a single function across industries and geographic regions. The implementation of an ‘EHSQ’ functional model is of interest to EHS software vendors who also sell quality management software just as much as to EHS vendors who currently lack quality functionality. It also has implications for vendors of quality management software such as Harrington Group International (HGI), IQMS, MasterControl, and Sparta Systems. The analysis of the EHSQ organizational trend is based on interviews with 382 EHS decision-makers at firms with annual revenues ranging from $250 million to over $20 billion (see Verdantix Global EHS Leaders Survey 2017: Budgets, Priorities And Tech Preferences).
