What is important to us

Safeguarding life, property and the environment

Our purpose, ‘to safeguard life, property and the environment’, is our reason for being. It has guided us since our foundation in 1864, and is shared with our sole owner, Stiftelsen Det Norske Veritas – a freestanding, independent Norwegian foundation. This enables us to take a long-term view on how we create value for our customers, employees, society and the environment.
