ERM has been ranked #1 in the brand perception ranking question for the second consecutive time in an independent, global survey of environment, health and safety (EHS) decision makers, conducted by the analyst firm, Verdantix.
ERM came first against 20 other environmental services firms in terms of positive perception in relation to the survey’s question on the perspective on firms that provide environmental services like remediation, impact assessment and EHS strategy. The survey interviewed 312 heads of EHS, spanning 21 industries and 15 geographies.
Survey participants were asked which EH&S service providers have the strongest brand awareness, preference and engagement among global heads of EH&S and in response described their perspective on 21 firms in terms of their ability to provide environmental services for large multinational firms.
ERM came out top in the brand survey for providing technical environmental consulting services to large multinational firms globally. When examining brand awareness, four in five firms (79%) have information and are aware of ERM. Described as the largest independent EH&S and sustainability services firm, the survey also highlighted the way in which we continue to strengthen and diversify our environmental service capabilities with the acquisitions we have recently made.
About the report
This report helps strategy leaders, Chief Marketing Officers and business development directors at EH&S service providers measure how heads of EH&S perceive their brand and benchmark levels of awareness and engagement. The Verdantix survey interviewed 312 senior EH&S decision-makers with direct responsibilities for corporate-wide EH&S management strategies and initiatives, including the selection of environmental service provider(s) for engagements such as remediation, impact assessments and EH&S strategy. The annual revenues of responding firms were a minimum of $250 million, with 82% of the 312 firms having revenues greater than $1 billion, representing 21 industries and 15 geographies. This year’s EH&S leaders survey sample size was expanded by 25% to include new regions and job functions with a more equal weighting across the constituent parts of EH&S.
