FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., July 12, 2011 /PR Newswire/ -- The financial materiality of sustainability performance data relating to energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water usage, supply chain policies, and environmental management is growing. As a result, a wider range of senior managers need confidence in these data sets and management systems. To help decision-makers in roles like Head of External Affairs, Chief Risk Officer, CFO, and Head of Sustainability the Verdantix Green Quadrant report provides a detailed, fact-based comparison of the assurance services provided by 13 global suppliers.
The analysis was based on interviews with 15 international buyers representing firms with combined revenues of $362 billion, supplier responses to a 48 point questionnaire and interviews with industry experts from a variety of standards bodies. The study found six suppliers currently leading the market, with one being Bureau Veritas. These six suppliers offer the broadest and deepest set of capabilities internationally and have the greatest market momentum.
Murray Sayce, Technical Director, Sustainability Services, Bureau Veritas UK & Ireland comments, 'As one of the early advocates of sustainability reporting, we are delighted that the Verdantix Green Quadrant analysis has positioned Bureau Veritas as a market leader in sustainability assurance services.
