Independent Assessments of your suppliers’ performance

BV Green Line



Increasingly complex global supply chains and greater awareness of Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) from consumers mean it has never been more important to monitor the performance of those organisations within your supply chain.

Poor standards from suppliers in relation to safety, ethics or sustainability performance can affect your own reputation. Bureau Veritas offers a solution with trusted second party audits to assess the performance of your suppliers and help protect brand reputation.
