Bureau Veritas creates Net Zero Center of Excellence in France with The Support of Envision Digital
Bureau Veritas announces the opening of a Net Zero center of excellence, with the support of Envision Digital. Its purpose is to address the challenges of clients seeking to reduce their energy consumption, decarbonize their activities and make their claims traceable. The center will help organizations make significant progress toward achieving their Net Zero commitments through digitized, verifiable and certifiable processes. By partnering with Envision Digital, Bureau Veritas will benefit from the expertise of a world leading company in carbon footprint monitoring and reduction.
Given their customers' expectations in terms of decarbonization and current transparency challenges, Bureau Veritas and Envision Digital, technology leader in Artificial Intelligence and IoT (AIoT) serving decarbonization and Net Zero objectives, will combine their know-how to develop an integrated energy management and carbon monitoring service offered within a Net Zero center of excellence.
The center will meet three needs:
- Real time certification of carbon emissions to ensure credibility and facilitate non-financial reporting (CSRD, ESG, etc.)
- Achievement of defined energy and carbon objectives, while optimizing costs (monitoring and optimization of carbon emissions, commitment to results on expected savings, etc.)
- Funding of the required investments for carbon emissions monitoring (supply of sensors, installation of the platform, energy-carbon management service). This is via the Energy Savings Certificates program, for which Bureau Veritas is one of France’s leading experts via its subsidiary Capital Energy.
Jacques Pommeraud, EVP Africa, France and Services to Governments of Bureau Veritas, says: "We created the center in response to an increasingly demanding regulatory context and a sharp rise in energy prices. It is a fundamental innovation for our customers, as it enables them to accelerate the achievement of their 'Net Zero' objectives. It is a further demonstration of Bureau Veritas' commitment to helping its clients be more effective and credible in the implementation of sustainable solutions. As an independent third party and with the help of Envision Digital, a leading player in its market, we offer services and solutions adapted to today’s challenges."
Maher Chebbo, Managing Director EMEA of Envision Digital, adds:
"This EnOS™ digital platform, that we have made available to Bureau Veritas, is based on our AIoT technology. It combines an IoT platform with advanced expertise in Artificial Intelligence dedicated to decarbonization. In a context of intense energy and environmental tension, this solution makes it possible to assess and optimize energy consumption, as well as the carbon footprint of customers, supporting the transition to a low-carbon economy. Thanks to Bureau Veritas’ know-how, our customers will benefit from the services of a shared Carbon center of excellence promoting a global and dedicated approach to the implementation of concrete, effective and innovative solutions."
Throughout the entire chain, Bureau Veritas and Envision Digital will provide customers with a secure, modular and digital decarbonization system as well as global technical support. This model has already been successfully implemented elsewhere.
The creation of the Net Zero Center of Excellence is a new milestone in the collaboration between the two companies since 2021, when the launch of their partnership was announced.
