Relationship to support environmental, health, safety and sustainability business process transformation, advanced analytics, system implementation and deployment

Ernst & Young LLP and Enablon, a Wolters Kluwer business, have announced a strategic alliance to bring clients leading software technology and service offerings to better manage environmental, health, safety and sustainability (EHS&S) risks, streamline EHS&S business processes and improve performance.

Companies across all sectors around the world are facing increasingly challenging and at-risk business environments. As a result, their ability to manage risks, demonstrate operational efficiency, and drive sustainability performance is essential to delivering long-term value to stakeholders. This requires them to integrate advanced technology and deep domain expertise into organizational business processes.

The alliance will support collaboration, co-innovation, joint offerings and various activities across related Enablon product lines and EY practice areas.

The EY network of EHS&S service professionals provides a broad range of experience to assist organizations with a pragmatic business approach to EHS&S, while Enablon brings unique technology innovation to support sustainable excellence across operations.

“This alliance combines our deep technical and domain knowledge, business acumen and systems deployment experience with an industry-leading software provider to provide a powerful value proposition to our clients,” said Steve Howe, US Chairman, Ernst & Young LLP and EY Americas Managing Partner. “Working together as an integrated team, combining new services and innovative products, we can help drive compliance efficiencies, increase operational effectiveness and manage risk. The alliance will also further expand EY data system and analytics capabilities and the range of services offered to clients.”

“Wolters Kluwer’s mission is to help organizations make critical decisions with confidence,” said Wolters Kluwer Legal & Regulatory division CEO Stacey Caywood. “Enablon’s alliance with EY fully supports our vision of further developing solutions for EHS&S professionals.”

“Environmental, health, safety and sustainability are critical issues that boards are taking seriously and this alliance will deliver an industry-leading approach to the market,” said Jeanna Doherty, Sponsor of the EY/Enablon Alliance, EY Americas Climate Change and Sustainability Services Leader. “As these issues become increasingly important to investors and other key stakeholders, creating innovative data solutions will be critical in helping clients address these issues effectively.”

“Technology has a transformative power, both to address the most pressing business EHS&S risks companies face every day, and also to create value by turning risks into opportunities,” commented Phil Tesler, CEO of Enablon North America. “We believe that partnering with EY, who combine deep domain expertise with global presence, will strongly benefit all our customers worldwide.”
