“Sustainability is a response to the current crisis, it aims to solve problems now and in the future. It is the short-term objective needed to address this long-term dilemma. Bureau Veritas is well suited to help provide answers needed for a path forward. We look to empower organizations with the information necessary in their journey towards more sustainable businesses in a more sustainable world,” says Magdalena. “My speech will be focused on enacting Environmental Social Governance which requires information to be measured, examined, and verified in order to steer the process to an efficient, effective, and impactful result. The tools used to collect this information should be reliable, traceable, and transparent. Such transparency in the marketplace provides instruments that preserve profitability by protecting brands, safeguarding reputations and cementing trust between clients, consumers, public authorities and businesses, concludes Mrs Pavlak-Chiaradia.
