Supporting sustainable transformations

Why it matters

At DNV GL, we work to make an impact on creating a better future in two ways: Firstly, we work to reduce our own footprint and make our worldwide operations as sustainable as possible. We are guided by the ten principles of the UN Global Compact and our Code of Conduct. Sustainability is embedded within the DNV GL management system and we seek continual improvement through certification to external standards, such as ISO 14001 for environment and ISO 45001 for occupational health and safety.

Our second, and far greater, impact is through the services we provide to our customers. In each of our business areas, our products, services and expertise help customers become more efficient, improve their performance, and operate safely and sustainably. Investment in research and partnerships provides clarity on today’s sustainability challenges and insight into potential solutions. We use the findings in our work with customers and, where they can benefit a wider group of stakeholders, we make them freely available.
