Bureau Veritas has entered into a new collaboration agreement with provider of environmental, health, safety, risk, and social consulting services, Environmental Resources Management (ERM).
Initially focussed on the North Sea Region, but applicable globally, this relationship will bolster business development for both companies, allowing them to pull on each other’s strengths and capabilities to offer their combined services within the oil and gas industry.
Commenting on the partnership, Paul Shrieve, Bureau Veritas Regional CEO North Sea Offshore Operations, said: “We are pleased to be joining forces with ERM who, like Bureau Veritas, offer strategic and innovative solutions to operational challenges across the North Sea and beyond.
“ERM is a leading sustainability consultancy that works across a diverse range of industries to help clients manage their environmental, health, safety, risk and social impacts. We believe that our combined experience and expertise will offer further solutions for the oil and gas market during this challenging time in the market place.”
Created in 1828, Bureau Veritas is a global leader in testing, inspection and certification (TIC), delivering high-quality services to help clients meet the growing challenges of quality, safety, environmental protection and social responsibility. The company employs around 69,000 people globally and over 100 in North Sea Offshore Operations, which are based in the UK and Norway.
ERM’s key clients include many of the world’s leading organisations. They operate from more than 160 offices in over 40 countries and territories, with offices in Scotland and Norway, which serve clients who operate in the North Sea. ERM holds a breadth of more than 40 years’ experience with a strong track record in delivering successful outcomes for their clients on complex and challenging projects.
Steve Matthews, ERM Managing Partner of Northern Europe, added: “We are delighted to have entered into this collaboration with Bureau Veritas. As global leaders in sustainability, we are pleased to be working with a business that maintains the same high standards as ERM and look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship working within the Oil & Gas client base.”
