ESS, Hara Integrate Platforms to Serve Joint Clients
ESS, the leading provider of Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) and Crisis Management software, and Hara, the fastest growing provider of on-demand Environmental and Energy Management software, announced a strategic relationship that empowers the EH&S community to take a leadership role in delivering new levels of operational efficiency to their organizations.
The joint solution combines the industry's most comprehensive EH&S reporting and compliance platform with powerful strategy, initiative management and best practices capabilities to reduce operating costs and meet resource conservation goals.
ESS has a strong track record of helping its customers manage the business processes surrounding EH&S and mitigate the risks associated with compliance and sustainability, including greenhouse gas (GHG) management. Hara enables its customers to identify millions of dollars in savings from energy, water and waste abatement strategies while reducing carbon emissions. Together, the two companies are able to deliver a cohesive, integrated solution—initially targeting companies in the oil and gas, utility and power, natural resources and chemical industries—that provides a global view of environmental and energy data as well as enabling and overseeing the business process for planning and acting on mitigation strategies and initiatives.
"Together, Hara and ESS enable our joint customers to leverage their investments in environmental reporting and compliance management while providing them with a forward-looking, holistic solution for environmental and energy management to improve operational efficiencies, enhance brand value and mitigate risks associated with their sustainability initiatives," said Amit Chatterjee, chief executive officer and co-founder of Hara.
"By integrating the ESS EH&S compliance and GHG platform with the Hara Environmental and Energy Management solution, ESS and Hara are able to provide the most complete and accurate asset-level environmental record available in the market today. We look forward to working with our joint customers to achieve their corporate governance goals for sustainability and operational excellence," said Robert Johnson, ESS president and chief executive officer.
