Verdantix EHS Innovation Awards 2019

Atlanta | 24 September | Porsche Heritage Center

The 2019 EHS Innovations Awards winners have been announced!

The prestigious Verdantix EHS Innovation Awards recognized the people and organizations who are instrumental in launching successful, innovative technologies which facilitate management of the EHS function to deliver superior results. The annual Verdantix EHS Innovation Awards ceremony took place in the Heritage Center of the Porsche Experience Center Atlanta where attendees had the opportunity to experience a drive in a high-end Porsche sports car round the demonstration track.

  • “Winning the EHS Innovation award for our ProcessMAP enterprise EHS platform implementation project was fantastic recognition for the 18 months of hard work that we have put in to implementing EHS technology which helps us improve EHS process efficiency and performance. As a community, it’s important for us to be sharing EHS best practices in order to learn and improve, and the Verdantix awards offered a great platform to highlight the importance of adopting new technologies in EHS and the impact they can have.”

  • How to apply

    Winners were announced on September 24, 2019 at the Porsche Heritage Center, Atlanta, GA.

  • Rules & Guidelines

    The EHS information management project you are nominating must be fully operational and must be able to demonstrate real improvements in EHS performance and business performance. For example: reduced injury rates, faster data provision to decision-makers or reduced non-compliance costs.

    Any project that began in 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018 and 2019 is eligible.

    We will judge the winners based on what the original the project was, the challenges you overcame to achieve it, the scale of the benefits relative to the scale of the organization and how impressive the project is relative to comparable projects submitted in the same industry category.

    We may reclassify entries into different industry categories if it is a more appropriate fit given your business activities.

    Vendors of EHS software, product stewardship solutions and consulting services can submit applications based on the work they have done with their customers, but the vendors are responsible for obtaining the necessary permissions to submit those entries. In these cases, the Awards will mention both the customer and the vendor as Award winners. Any vendor communications must reference the Award as: “Through its successful project for CUSTOMER, VENDOR received a Verdantix EHS Innovation Award.”

    We will award at most one winner in each industry category, plus finalists if there were other great entries besides the winner. If there are no worthy entries in an industry category, we won’t give an award in that category.

    All winners will be announced on September 24, 2019 at the Verdantix EHS Summit. Winners will be featured in Verdantix blogs and in a press release following the Verdantix Summit as well as receiving an award winner icon to use in marketing communications.

    The content of all entries is provided by you on the record and can be quoted in Verdantix research, referenced at the Verdantix Summit and used in other Verdantix materials. All entry submissions will be posted on the Verdantix EHS Innovation Awards page on the Summit website following review by the moderator.

    We will block entries that we think are inappropriate, including those containing obscenity or copyright violations.

The Awards winners have now been announced!

There is no fee to participate. Previous winners include Walmart, Kinder Morgan, Total, Johnson Controls, DHL, INEOS, Nestle and UN HCR.
