DuPont Sustainable Solutions Recognized as Top EHS Consulting Brand for the Second Year in a Row

Survey by independent research firm shows that DSS ranks highest for brand preference and brand awareness for second year in a row.  

WILMINGTON, Del, Nov. 14, 2018 – DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) has been ranked as the top EHS (Environment, Health & Safety) consulting brand for the second consecutive year according to a survey released in November by the independent research and consulting firm Verdantix. The survey of more than 410 senior corporate EHS decision-makers from 35 countries gave DSS top marks for both preference and awareness among all EHS consulting brands.  

“DuPont Sustainable Solutions is deeply grateful to receive this recognition again this year,” said Davide Vassallo, Global Managing Director of DuPont Sustainable Solutions. “Our commitment has always been to help our clients improve the safety and operational performance of their organizations, and the Verdantix survey confirms that our work is bringing value to the clients we partner with daily. We thank our clients for their trust and the Verdantix research for this significant acknowledgement of our work. And we thank all DSS employees for their commitment and dedication to making our clients successful.”  

According to the Verdantix Global EHS Leaders Survey 2018: EHS Consulting Brands, half of all respondents (52 percent) rank DSS the market leading consultant for brand preference, up from 32 percent of respondents in last year’s survey. Thirty-eight percent consider DSS’ capabilities “strong,” higher than any other EHS consultant in the market for the second year in a row. Also, three of every four respondents (76 percent) stated they are aware of DSS’ capabilities as an EHS consultant, which again is higher than any other brand in the EHS consulting market.  

The Verdantix survey was completed by 411 senior EHS decision-makers with direct responsibilities for corporatewide EHS management strategies and initiatives across 35 countries. All the respondents are from corporations with revenues of at least $250 million among 25 different industries. Half of respondents (51 percent) represent industries with high to very high EHS risk profiles, with the chemicals, mining and metals, and oil and gas industries accounting for 28 percent of respondents.
