INDICATORS

Quantified goals have been set up to address three safety and three environmental performance indicators (KPIs) for Bureau Veritas operations and the implementation of its HSE Management System. Biannual reporting was started in 2007 to monitor the company’s performance.

The safety performance indicators are tracked worldwide, covering all Bureau Veritas entities.
