Circular Economy

Work with Bureau Veritas to optimise your waste strategy with circular economy principles.

BV Green Line


With dwindling global resources and a greater focus on waste management, the notion of a circular economy has gained traction in recent years. Many UK organisations are signing up to national and global initiatives. However, this is more than just a trend – it offers a fantastic opportunity to drive improvement and demonstrate sustainability.

Transitioning to the circular economy requires a systemic shift in the way new products are created. A deeper analysis is required for how products are designed, how their input materials are sourced, how they are manufactured and how sub-products are reused, and wastes are recycled. To do this, you must understand and control all materials and processes used in production, and you must define, implement, and verify all processes.

HOW bv supports the uk circular ecomony

Through many years of certification experience across all sectors, Bureau Veritas has developed Circular+. Circular+ is a suite of sustainability auditing and certification services which helps companies to develop a customisable approach to waste management in order to achieve a successful transition.
