San Diego, Calif. -- Environmental Business Journal (EBJ), a business research publication, which provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry*, has honored 50 companies for revenue growth, acquisitions, innovative project designs, technology applications, new practice areas, social contributions and industry leadership in 2012.
EarthSoft is pleased to announce that it was chosen to receive the EBJ award for Information Technology.
“In an industry that has just managed to out-perform the overall economy but still presents challenges in many segments, a number of companies have achieved double-digit growth, sustained high profitability, built solid backlog, made successful forays into new practice areas or geographic markets, or developed technologies that can help build a more sustainable economy,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, San Diego), publisher of Environmental Business Journal.
EarthSoft was recognized for another high-growth year in 2012, with two-year combined growth in excess of 60% and a user base now spanning 43 countries. New EarthSoft clients include Santos (the largest Australian liquefied natural gas exploration and production portfolio by area), Teck Resources (Canadian mining producer of copper, coal, zinc, molybdenum, and specialty metals), Cetrel (the largest multi-party industrial facility in Latin America), Suncor, BP Alaska, Pioneer Natural Resources, Dow Chemical, the Region 9 office of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Port of Portland, Seattle Public Utilities, GZA GeoEnvironmental, Tetra Tech Germany, and MWH. In addition, the Marcellus Shale Coalition (MSC) chose the EQuIS software package in late 2011, and launched the program in 2012. EQuIS workflows will provide data collection and electronic submissions to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection for the pre-drill database. EarthSoft also introduced new modules, including EQuIS Live for real-time, time-series data management, EQuIS Alive for ecology data, AutoCAD integration, and significant improvements to the Sample Planning Module (SPM) and field data collection application (EDGE).
The 2012 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XI in Coronado, Calif. on March 6-8, 2013. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day event hosted by EBI Inc.
