Carlsbad, Calif., March 27, 2014 — 3E Company, a leading provider of environmental health and safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, today announced that 3ESCTM received Top Product of the Year Award in the Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards. 3ESC is 3E’s robust solution that helps companies navigate the complexities associated with achieving product- and supplier-level compliance while also helping mitigate risk in the supply chain. 3E Company is a subsidiary of Verisk Analytics (Nasdaq:VRSK).
3ESC is considered by judges to be an exemplary risk mitigation offering. One judge stated that 3ESC “is a useful tool in a complex compliance space where it is very difficult for large companies to ‘know everything they need to know…when they need to know it.’” Another judge noted that 3ESC is a “comprehensive solution,” while 3E has “proven expertise and experience.”
“The caliber of the entries this year was even more impressive than last year and showed the excitement and innovation taking place in the industry today,” says Paul Nastu, publisher, Environmental Leader. “There was tough competition for those that entered, and the products that were awarded Top Product or Project of the Year are those that the judges say have viable attributes that set them apart from others in the field. In the case of 3ESC, the judges agreed that this new platform brings unprecedented depth, breadth, and foundational strength for effective corporate supply chain compliance programs that mitigate risk, improve market access, and enhance competitive agility.”
The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line.
