Didier Michaud-Daniel, Chief Executive Officer : "Since its inception, Bureau Veritas has always supported its clients to mitigate Risks through our applied expertise in Quality, Heath, Environment, Safety, Privacy & Progress.
Almost 200 years ago, it started with establishing Rules for the marine business. 
With the Globalization of the world economy, standardization and norms have blossomed: Bureau Veritas accompanied its clients in their duty and willingness to be compliant with regulations.
More recently, several resounding scandals in various sectors such as food, auto, chemicals, power, and digital, have raised the transparency issues across the world, and therefore created trust issues as well.
As an independent party, Bureau Veritas has contributed to build the Trust between governments, companies and people, as they are the foundation of living together as a Society. 
Complex and interlinked forces are transforming economies, industries and global issues: growing urbanization, booming demographics, Shift toward greener energy, Digital transformation through Artificial Intelligence, Data Fusion, machine learning...
We see that this shift in our playing field is tremendously reshaping the face of Bureau Veritas and deeply transforming the way we are addressing our clients’ needs and meeting their challenges.
Bureau Veritas is entering a new phase of its development with the ultimate goal to answering society’s deep lying aspirations while addressing our clients’ existing and future challenges.
