Automated and Turnkey Sustainability Reporting and Assurance
Atlanta, Georgia – February 15, 2023 – Today, Atrius, part of Acuity Brands, Inc. (NYSE: AYI), a market-leading industrial technology company, announced a new agreement with Apex Companies, LLC, a leading multidisciplinary consulting and engineering firm. Through this collaboration, Atrius customers will have greater confidence in their sustainability data using Apex’s specialized Sustainability and Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) services.
Companies around the globe are navigating new ESG regulatory requirements, as well as growing demand from clients, suppliers, and vendors, to report on their carbon impact. Enterprises big and small are seeking proven and effective solutions, as well as expertise, to meet their ESG goals in a reliable, compliant and efficient manner. With Apex’s position as a trusted provider of ESG assurance services, and the ease and scalability of Acuity’s Atrius Building Insights platform, businesses will be better equipped to confidently report their ESG progress at a fraction of the cost and time spent using other methods.
“Organizations are facing a growing number of reporting requirements for corporate carbon emissions and are increasingly looking to experts like Atrius and Apex to help them get there,” said Andrew Blauvelt, Senior Director of Product Management, Atrius, Acuity Brands. “Our collaboration with Apex allows us to offer customers a complete turnkey solution with Atrius’ cutting-edge technology platform—saving both time and money so companies can focus on what really matters most for their business, and the environment.”
