logoCOVID-19 Impact:

COVID-19 has both positive and negative market consequences because, as a result of the lockdown, carbon emissions have decreased globally. The reduction in emissions caused by COVID-19 is a short-term benefit; however, as industries and corporations attempt to recuperate some of their financial losses at the beginning of the year, it will actually lead to a considerably greater level of carbon emissions. COVID-19 has had a negative impact on recycling initiatives all around the world. Countries, notably the United States, have suspended or decreased their recycling programs in order to focus on the collection of extra domestic waste or because services have been disrupted by the virus.

After the COVID-19 outbreak, and as industries gradually return to normalcy, this shift in workplace health and safety is expected to increase due to mandatory requirements of social distancing as well as continuous personal care through sanitization to eliminate even the smallest possibility of COVID-19 spread. COVID-19 has also had an impact on some companies' revenues, and if the lockdown is lifted, they will shift their focus to operations in order to recover their losses.

logo Growth Drivers

  • Increased government initiatives to ensure that certain workplace safety and environmental norms and requirements are followed.

Government agencies such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Department of Justice (DOJ), and state agencies require enterprises to adhere to specified labor safety and environmental policies and standards. Regulatory agencies put economic pressure on businesses to streamline their business processes and make them more environmentally friendly. Furthermore, increased scrutiny and severe rules have compelled management teams to implement EHS software solutions in order to reduce the number of workplace mishaps.
