UN Sustainable Development Goals

DNV GL supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals, which are well aligned with our purpose, vision and values.

These global goals stimulate the way we run and develop our business. We already provide strong business solutions for many of the Sustainable Development Goals, including:

SDG 7: Affordable and clean energy
SDG 9: Industry, innovation and infrastructure
SDG 13: Climate action

Going forward, we consider these goals to be relevant indicators of market trends and will pursue stronger business positions for goals:

SDG 3: Good health and well-being
SDG 12: Responsible consumption and production
SDG 14: Life below water

More information on how our work has supported the Sustainable Development Goals in 2016 is presented in the Market section.

Our aim is for customers to experience a more agile, responsive and data-smart company, catering even better to their business needs.

To build further resilience to volatile market conditions in its existing core industries, the company also wants to become a trusted assurance provider within the healthcare and food sectors.
