OUR COMMITMENT TO COMMUNITIES

Bureau Veritas supports local development through its offices around the world, which boost employment rates in the 140 countries where the Group is active. In this way, Bureau Veritas contributes to socio-economic development in the regions in which it operates, including via its network of local suppliers and partners.

Bureau Veritas works on behalf of communities. Community-focused actions taken by Bureau Veritas are planned on the ground, at a local level. This approach is part of the Group's wider “Be part of it” policy. In 2018, over 150 local initiatives were rolled out in the form of donations or skill-based sponsorship, primarily in the fields of health, education and the environment.
