DuPont Sustainable Solutions Named Top EHS Consulting Brand for Fifth Consecutive Year

Latest Survey by Independent Research Firm Verdantix Ranks DSS Highest for Brand Preference and Recognizes DSS Business Strategy as Industry Best Practice

GENEVA, Switzerland, September 16, 2021 – DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) has scored highest for EHS (Environment, Health & Safety) consulting brand for preference for the fifth year in a row, according to a survey released in August by independent research and consulting firm Verdantix. The survey of more than 300 senior EHS executives gave DSS top marks for brand preference among all EHS consulting brands. Verdantix this year also recognized DSS' business model for continuing to "diversify its services to perform a wider array of project types catering to a greater scope of industries."

"DuPont Sustainable Solutions is grateful to be recognized as the top EHS consulting firm for a remarkable five years in a row," said Davide Vassallo, Chief Executive Officer of DuPont Sustainable Solutions. "DSS has always been guided by the belief that helping our clients integrate EHS and operations management is essential to driving enterprise-wide transformation that will enable them to successfully protect their people, improve their operations and create a sustainable future. I want to thank each of our clients for their continued confidence in our capabilities and service offerings, which is again reflected in this year's Verdantix's survey."

According to Verdantix's 2021 survey, DSS ranked at the top for brand preference with nearly forty percent (39 percent) of respondents rating DSS as either "market-leading" (16 percent) or "strong" (23 percent) in its capabilities as an EHS service provider. DSS also ranked second among EHS firms for brand awareness, with 71 percent of respondents saying they are aware of DSS' capabilities as an EHS service provider.

Additionally, Verdantix's Global Corporate Survey 2021: EHS Service Providers Brand Recognition report recognized DSS' business strategy as an industry best practice for its ongoing efforts to diversify its client offerings and capabilities, including:

  1. Strengthening its sustainability offering to meet growing corporate ESG pressures by acquiring earlier this year KKS Advisors, a specialist ESG and sustainability consulting firm.

  2. Possessing the ability to digitally transform client EHS processes by offering a full digitization service that integrates Internet of Things (IoT) devices within its DSS Transform software solution to form a fully connected safety platform for clients.

  3. Being able to cater to larger-scale client projects by having the infrastructure to drive corporate client initiatives on an enterprise-wide level.

"While protecting people and saving lives continues to be at the core of our purpose and our portfolio of solutions, DSS is actively diversifying our offerings to meet the needs of global clients who seek transformation across their entire operations. DSS will continue to develop and make available other innovations that help our clients overcome emerging challenges and improve operations," said Vassallo.

The 2021 Verdantix survey was completed by 302 senior EHS executives with direct responsibilities for corporate-wide EHS management strategies and initiatives at companies located across 31 countries in Asia Pacific, Europe, Gulf States and Africa, Latin America and North America. Nearly three-quarters (74 percent) of the senior executives interviewed represented companies with revenues greater than $1 billion across 25 industries. EHS executives participating in the survey represented very high-risk industries such as chemicals, metals and mining, and oil and gas, as well as the aerospace, construction, pulp and paper, power utility, electronics and food and beverage sectors, among others.
