Shaping a Better World

CSR 3

At Bureau Veritas, we help companies, governments and public authorities reduce their risks in terms of health, quality, safety, environmental protection and social responsibility. 

Those challenges are central to societal aspirations. Being a Business to Business to Society company comes with a duty: to be exemplary in terms of sustainability internally, and to be a role model for industries in this area. 

Our commitment is to act responsibly in order to Shape a Better World.

This means contributing every day to Shape a Better Workplace, a Better Environment, and Better Business Practices.

As the world transitions to a zero-carbon economy, we are committed to making changes in order to reduce our environmental impact and support climate action.

Bureau Veritas has joined the Science Based Targets initiative, a group of leading companies who are demonstrating the highest level of ambition on climate and paving the way to a net-zero future. It is a collaboration between CDP, World Resources Institute (WRI), the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), and the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).

As a member of this group, we commit to aligning climate targets to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. Our carbon emission reduction targets for 2025 are currently being analysed by the Science Based Targets initiative.

Bureau Veritas has committed to SBTi’s ‘Business Ambition for 1.5°C’, an urgent call to action from a global coalition of UN agencies, business and industry leaders, in partnership with Race to Zero.

Additionally, we are part of the group of visionary leaders within the UN Global Compact, as well as recognised as committed to setting science-based targets on CDP and We Mean Business.
