Improve the ease of ESG management with Bureau Veritas

With companies making greater environmental, social and governance (ESG) commitments, often going beyond regulatory disclosure, managing sustainability goals may be time-consuming and complex and impeded by poor data quality.

Creating and monitoring the implementation of codes, processes and strategies tailored to a company’s specific challenges and materiality analysis frequently necessitates a range of expertise that can be difficult to acquire in-house, says testing, inspection and certification services expert Bureau Veritas Africa mining market leader Mashudu Lembede.

“Clarity by Bureau Veritas is a new suite of solutions that assists businesses in managing their ESG roadmap and monitoring the completion of their sustainability strategy with respect to their commitments and the assessment of their improvement, among other factors.”

The company aims to establish valuable collaborations by participating in the 2024 Investing in African Mining Indaba, demonstrating its commitment to enhancing quality, safety and sustainability standards throughout the mining value chain.

Bureau Veritas recently supported a major mining industry client in Zambia with the implementation of the Clarity solution, enabling the company to communicate on its sustainability plan with transparency and credibility, supported by an impartial third party.

“In the current economic context, our company's vast global footprint positions us as a dependable partner. We provide unrivalled support through our extensive network, enabling seamless testing, inspection and certification services across varied areas, creating resilience and adaptability for our clients worldwide,” states Lembede.

While attending Mining Indaba, Bureau Veritas aims to encourage industry collaborations, demonstrate its knowledge and explore strategic alliances to drive innovation and growth in the dynamic mining sector and, thereby, reduce its metals and minerals clients’ risk exposure.
