CH2M HILL Named a Leader in Global EH&S Technology Services

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Jan 20, 2015) - "CH2M HILL's all-round strength is an ideal match for customers wanting to drive value from solutions," according to a new Green Quadrant® report by Verdantix, an independent analyst firm focused on energy, EH&S and sustainability. Previously Verdantix has named CH2M HILL a leader in its Green Quadrant studies on U.S. Sustainability Consulting (May 2013), U.S. Environmental Services (May 2012) and U.S. Sustainable Engineering (Sept. 2010).

"It's an honor to be named among these top-tier firms as a global leader in EH&S technology service providers. We've been at the forefront of giving clients more return on investment by implementing commercial off-the-shelf software systems and training client teams to maintain these systems," added Lucas Wolfenden, EH&S Information Management Global Practice Lead. "Collaboration between our EH&S and information management specialists allows us to provide clients the best possible service and subject matter expertise in the industry."

For its Green Quadrant® EH&S Technology Services (Global) report, Verdantix conducted a detailed fact-based comparison of 12 leading global EH&S technology consultants, combining benchmark data from supplier interviews, responses to a 133-point questionnaire and interviews with 15 E&HS technology clients across seven industries. Verdantix found that clients most frequently select environmental consultants with dedicated EH&S IT teams and put their faith in large environmental and engineering firms, such as CH2M HILL, which provide wide-ranging environmental services as well as EH&S specialist teams.

Verdantix further noted CH2M HILL's following strengths in its report:

  • Off-the-shelf software system implementation, noting CH2M HILL's strategic alliances with Enablon, Enviance and Intelex and demonstrated knowledge and experience with a range of other commercial off-the-shelf systems in the market
  • Environmental impact areas expertise, with a strong track record in implementing solutions, deploying its process expertise for managing environmental impacts in high-impact sectors
  • Permit and applicability management, implementing solutions involving permit and regulatory applicability management with more than 40 compliance experts
  • Industrial safety, with strong advisory capabilities over the full process safety management life cycle, implementations and integration of systems to support data collection and analytics services
  • Vision and strategy on the evolution of technology, EH&S and business factors, clearly articulating a vision of challenging its clients to maximize the value from their EH&S work

"CH2M HILL's EH&S technology team has a strong track record in implementing solutions and deploying its process expertise for managing environmental impacts in high-impact sectors," Rodolphe d'Arjuzon, Verdantix Global Head of Research, said. "The team's beyond-compliance strategy makes data analytics a central focus in its EH&S technology services, challenging clients to maximize value by encouraging them to integrate sustainability within EH&S and give equal weight to safety as to environmental compliance."

Dr. John Mogge, CH2M HILL's Environmental Services Technology, Practices and Design Director, said, "This is an important market for CH2M HILL, and it's nice to be recognized for helping our clients get the maximum amount out of their investments by enabling them to sustain and maintain their own EH&S technology systems. I am also especially pleased to see the firm be recognized for our broad environmental services capabilities and commitment to integrating sustainability and valuing safety as much as compliance."
