ESG performance: Bureau Veritas improves MSCI Rating

May. 19 2021

Bureau Veritas has been reconfirmed as a leader in MSCI’s Global ESG Rating, showing marked improvement over the previous year’s score.

MSCI has rated Bureau Veritas for environmental, social responsibility and governance (ESG) performance since 2016, upgrading the Group from A to AA last year. In 2021, Bureau Veritas has been confirmed as an industry leader among 23 companies in the professional services industry, according to MSCI’s annual evaluation campaign.

The Group’s score jumped from 6.4 points in July 2020 to 7.3 in May 2021—a result of an increase in the Social pillar score related to human capital development and privacy and data security. Detailed information on MSCI ESG ratings is available here.
