TRANSFORM YOUR SUSTAINABILITY PRACTICES WITH BUREAU VERITAS CIRCULAR+
Today’s businesses are rethinking their sustainability strategies, and shifting focus from reducing environmental impacts, toward a circular economy business model. This is a renewable energy-powered model of production and consumption that requires companies to rework their linear business models and embrace a closed-loop system for resources and products.
Bureau Veritas Circular+ offers a comprehensive suite of sustainability services to help companies set ambitious objectives, including a circular business model. Through independent auditing, certification, and verification, companies can tackle individual processes or their entire business model, and transform their sustainability practices at their own pace.
ISO 50001 Energy Management System Certification
As environmental needs to lower carbon emissions mount, companies are facing a turning point in energy management. ISO 50001 is a global certification standard that helps companies monitor, manage, and reduce their energy consumption. With ISO 50001, you can work to minimise your environmental impact, and put energy efficiency at the heart of your sustainability strategy.
Companies can take advantage of renewable, low-carbon energy sources by meeting sustainable biofuels and biomass requirements. Several voluntary biofuels certification schemes – including 2BSvs, ISCC EU, ISCC, RedCert EU, RED 2 Directive, KZR INiG – help companies comply with EU directives. With certification from Bureau Veritas on biofuels management and biomass management schemes, you can access financial incentives and additional international biofuels markets.

Metals and Minerals Certification
Metal and minerals extraction is a challenging business, and companies must prove they follow ethical labor and sourcing practices throughout the supply chain. Initiatives like our ASI, RMI, LBMA and RJC, allow companies to show transparency across their supply chain, and that their business practices for aluminum, minerals, and precious metals extraction, as well as jewelry-making meet health & safety standards.
Sustainable Waste Management Certification
Inefficient waste management can negatively impact both the environment and an organisation’s finances. Our ISO 14001 Environmental Management System helps you minimise waste, rethink materials recycling, reduce environmental impact - and achieving cost savings.
Social Responsibility and Responsible Sourcing Certification
As consumer expectations and regulations change, businesses need to communicate openly about their social responsibility and ethical business practices. We provide audits for responsible supply chain and labour practices for SEDEX (SMETA), and certification to SA8000 standard.
Sustainability Report Assurance and Emissions Verification
Today’s businesses are motivated to demonstrate complete transparency communicating their sustainability impact to the public. Standards like ISO 14064-1 and 14067 track and report carbon emissions at an organisational level, and across product and service lifecycles. Verification to Gold Standard and VCS helps companies prove their emissions reduction projects are reliable and effective. We provide sustainability (CSR, CR, ESG) reports on standards such as AA1000AS, GRI and ISAE 3000, so you can provide your clients and the public with accountability.
