Ethics and compliance

Upholding our reputation for integrity

Why it matters

As a business based on knowledge and technical expertise, trust is an essential part of attracting and retaining customers. Building trust in our services, our skills and our behaviour everywhere we operate is essential and is reflected in DNV GL’s values. Trust can only be achieved when we consistently maintain high standards of business and personal conduct and strict adherence to our Code of Conduct which is built on DNV GL’s values supports this.

Our Code of Conduct provides the framework for what we consider ethical, responsible and sustainable conduct. Along with our values, it provides the foundation for our business activities. It supports our vision and our business ambitions, and applies to everyone involved in DNV GL’s business.

Progress in 2019

In 2019, we focused on awareness of export control law, an area of increasing importance in a world with many volatile political environments. We also continued to implement measures on data privacy aligning our approach with relevant stakeholders. Our approach is not to simply impose a set of rules, but to deliver our compliance programme in a way that raises awareness by explaining the background and practical implications of compliance.
