Metals & Minerals certification

Metals & Minerals certification

Metals and minerals extraction is potentially dangerous and polluting. To mitigate risk and preserve their reputation, many businesses certify their metal and mineral supply chain and production processes.

The metals and minerals industry is heavily scrutinized, pushing companies to prove their ethical business practices at all stages of production. Responsible sourcing and supply chain monitoring are key to preserving natural resources and ensuring safe, fair labor practices.

With certification and auditing from Bureau Veritas, companies can demonstrate compliance with global requirements for safety, quality and social responsibility. Certification also helps businesses safeguard their commercial interests, gain a competitive edge and contribute to a more sustainable vision of metal and mineral sourcing.
