DNV GL kicked off its 150th anniversary year with an event in Singapore for more than 500 customers, employees and stakeholders, together exploring insights and actions necessary to achieve its vision of ‘global impact for a safe and sustainable future’.
Can the shipping industry cut fatality rates by 90 per cent? Why should business help society build resilience to the effects of climate change that we can no longer avoid? Could cutting-edge floating offshore wind technology enable energy-challenged countries to provide clean and affordable power to their societies?
These are the types of questions that DNV GL has been tackling in a year-long scientific initiative to explore how to achieve its vision of global impact for a safe and sustainable future. Today, DNV GL President and CEO Henrik O. Madsen, IPCC Chairman Rajendra Pachauri and a group of next generation leaders drawn from across DNV GL’s global organisation met with customers and stakeholders to explore the initiative’s initial findings.
The initiative marked a double milestone: DNV’s 150th anniversary and DNV GL’s first year as a merged company. The focus is on six sustainability themes for the future:
1.Safe and sustainable future
2.From technology to transformation
3.The future of shipping
4.Electrifying the future
5.Arctic: the next risk frontier
6.Adaptation to a changing climate
