The National Bureau of Environmental Standards and Ratings

The Russian National Bureau of Environmental Standards and Ratings (NBESR / НБЭСР) is a non-profit partnership of research and technical specialists and representatives of environmental protection and public organisations.

The bureau cooperates with government and commercial organisations.

NBESR has created the following environmental certification systems:

These certification systems provide independent, third-party verification that the object (material/office/village) is consistent with the principles of achieving high performance in human and environmental safety and indoor environmental quality, functional characteristics, water efficiency, energy efficiency, raw materials selection etc.

The main principle of the standards is an individual approach to each object, depending on its functional purpose. The audit for compliance with the standard is carried out on the basis of laboratory investigations, the company’s environmental documentation analysis, the evaluation of the company under assessment.
