What is important to us

Stakeholder priorities

We engage with external and internal stakeholders to identify DNV GL’s most important risks, opportunities and impacts on economic, environmental and social topics. 

To direct our activities to what our stakeholders find important, we assess materiality regularly. This process is defined in a governing document and aligned with our risk- and brandmanagement processes. In 2017, the 2016 review directed our priorities. We executed a broad stakeholder survey late in the year to identify the most important sustainability topics amongst customers, owners, suppliers, partners, the media and employees. The replies from some 1,000 respondents will help to shape DNV GL’s priorities for 2018–2020. 

We welcome all input regarding important topics and take our stakeholders’ views into consideration in our operations and business development work. 

DNV GL’s materiality matrix reflects our key sustainability risks, impacts and opportunities. We set the priorities and report on the sustainability topics that are identified as being most important to both external and internal stakeholders.
