In order to transition to a carbon-neutral economy, their goals include, among other things, using at least “A” energy category office buildings, the continuous replacement of their entire vehicle fleet with hybrid and then fully electric cars by 2028. With the development of digitalization, they intend to reduce the personal trips required for work and the use of paper for work.
It is essential for them to keep human rights, values and diversity in mind and to support it in all areas of operation and during all their activities. The provisions to be followed in this regard are contained in their Code of Ethics. The TQR and Legal&Compliance office operate as separate areas within their global organizational structure. Annual trainings are held for all employees to maintain responsible and ethical operations. They also operate a “Whistleblowing” system, where anyone can anonymously report to the global L&C office if they notice any activity that raises ethical concerns. In 2019, Bureau Veritas Hungary won the Business Ethics Award in the multinational company category.
As a member of the BCSDH, their goal is to provide more and more space for sustainability in the course of their operations and to be able to support others in their efforts in this direction.
