Jan. 22 2021
Bureau Veritas is up 6 points, ranking in the top 15 service companies in the Gaïa Rating 2020 for ESG performance.
The extra-financial rating of Gaïa Rating, a department of EthiFinance, assesses companies’ level of transparency and performance for Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria for investors. The results of the Gaïa Rating 2020 evaluation campaign, based on data from 2019, thus determine the best French companies in terms of ESG performance.
This year, Bureau Veritas obtained a score of 83/100, significantly progressing by 6 points compared to our 2019 ranking (77/100). The Group ranks as:
- 14 out of 149 rated service companies.
- 24 out of 390 in global ranking.
- 21 out of 182 among companies with a turnover of more than €500 million.
The improvement of Bureau Veritas’ ESG rating with Gaïa Rating complements the recent and similar CSR rating improvements obtained by the Group from DJSI, MSCI, Sustainalytics and Vigeo-Eiris. They confirm Bureau Veritas’ commitment to being a sustainable and responsible company that seeks to create value for its clients, employees, shareholders and society at large.
