Ideagen and Vision Zero Connect join forces to help businesses achieve sustainability goals

Ideagen, a leading provider of regulatory and compliance software, has announced a new strategic partnership with Vision Zero Connect, a prominent sustainability consultancy firm, to help organizations achieve their environmental, social and governance (ESG) goals. 

The collaboration addresses the increasing demand from companies seeking more support in navigating the intricate and complex landscape of ESG regulation.  

Announcing the partnership, Ben Dorks, CEO of Ideagen, said:

“We are delighted to be partnering with Vision Zero Connect to offer comprehensive solutions for organizations’ ESG goals.    

“From talking to our customers, we know that many find the complexity of the ESG reporting landscape challenging. Joining forces with Vision Zero Connect means we can now not only offer software solutions to help them manage their ESG commitments, but the strategic guidance of Vision Zero Connect to help them shape and implement their ESG activity.”   

Rich Ford, Business Leader at Vision Zero Connect, commented on the vision driving the collaboration:

“The goal is to empower individuals, businesses and organizations to take proactive steps toward a sustainable future. Through consultative services and state-of-the-art software, we aim to support the worldwide shift to net-zero emissions.”   

Ideagen recently carried out interviews with more than 500 CEOs and C-Suite members, which revealed huge inconsistencies in ESG confidence. Less than half of CEOs said their strategy addressed ESG risks and for businesses with more than 30,000 employees, this dropped to 38%. 

In the past year alone, multiple sustainability disclosure requirements have been implemented. The International Sustainability Standards Board (ISSB) and the European Union (EU) published proposed disclosures in 2023, while the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) adopted final rules in March 2024. The ever-evolving variety of ESG regulations can often make it challenging for businesses to remain compliant.  

By combining Ideagen’s innovative software solutions with Vision Zero Connect’s sustainability expertise, the new alliance offers a unique blend of strategic insight, hands-on implementation and the practical tools to capture the ESG requirements. Organizations can incorporate ESG considerations into their daily operations by adopting this dual approach, customized to their specific needs, making considerable strides towards their sustainability target. 

Rich added:

“The market is waking up to ESG requirements and opportunities. This partnership empowers businesses to take advantage of these opportunities, which define and enhance governance practices, champion social responsibility and implement outstanding and rewarding environmental initiatives.”
