Corporate Social Responsibility


Bureau Veritas is committed to Corporate and Social Responsbility (CSR); it sits at the very heart of our organisation. We recognise the impact of business operations on people, communities and the environment, and we use our expertise in safety and sustainability to mitigate the effect of our own operations.
