“Businesses are facing increasing technological, regulatory, social and operational challenges, in a world that is becoming ever more complex. While at the same time, stakeholders are demanding great accountability and transparency. To be confident they are making the right choices, both businesses and governments need an independent partner they can trust to empower their decisions,” says Group CEO Madsen.
A broader viewAs a foundation for this, DNV GL is making a significant and continuous investment in strategic research and development. Innovative projects are taking technology and standards to new, advanced levels in collaboration with our customers.
“It was from this broader view that our new brand strategy of our expansive, expert services and customer enablement was created. The new visual identity with the three extended lines was created to symbolize our working context of sea, land and sky,” explains Stefan Nerpin, Group Chief Communications Officer of DNV GL.
Created from two highly respected companies whose parallel histories span almost 150 years, Nerpin is confident that the new DNV GL will “offer the businesses we serve much-needed benefits in terms of technical insight, risk management and knowledge transfer,” he says, adding, “With our combined capabilities, more than 16.000 professionals are bridging technological and operational expertise to the greater goal of creating a safer and more sustainable society.
