USA sets plan in motion

As President Joe Biden unveils the USA’s commitment to cutting carbon emissions, Bureau Veritas is urging businesses to prioritise their own net zero promises and to create a clear plan to deliver on this.


Just hours after being sworn in as president on 20th January, Joe Biden demonstrated his commitment to the climate crisis by reinstating the United States to the Paris Climate Agreement. He has now gone one step further by pledging to cut carbon emissions by 50-52 percent below 2005 levels by 2030.

According to Bureau Veritas, the immediate priority for businesses, that have not already done so, is to calculate their carbon footprint. Businesses that are not clear on what steps they need to take to play their part in this international effort towards tackling climate change can turn to a sustainability expert like Bureau Veritas to make assessments of their current sustainability performance and set in motion recommendation
