DNV GL has launched a new brand that reflects the group’s broader service offering. The new visual identity with three extended lines was created to symbolize the group’s working context of sea, land and sky.
The merger of DNV and GL in September this year, led to the creation of DNV GL, a world leading ship and offshore classification society, a leading independent service provider in oil and gas, energy and renewables, and one of the world’s top three certification bodies.
“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 greater 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 president and CEO Henrik O. Madsen. “In defining our new identity as DNV GL, our company’s vision of making a ‘global impact for a safe and sustainable future’ has never been more relevant than it is today.”
The post-merger integration is progressing well, and Madsen says the new global entity is in a good position to take on the first full year of operations as one company. “We want to build upon the knowledge and expertise throughout the group by creating new networks and learning from each other. Our goal is to make sure that we are always finding innovative solutions that create value and growth for our customers, ensuring that the world we leave behind is a better one than the one we find today.”
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 customers.
DNV GL’s objective is to safeguard life, property and the environment. It is organised in four business areas: Maritime, Oil & Gas, Energy and Business Assurance.
The group offers ship and offshore classification, certification and verification in addition to software services and advisory services, mainly within the maritime, oil & gas and energy industries, but it also offers certification and sustainability advisory services to a large number of other industries worldwide.
The group, headquartered in Norway, currently invests about 5 per cent of its total revenues in strategic research & innovation. DNV GL employs around 16,000 people in some 100 countries. The DNV Foundation owns 63.5 per cent of DNV GL, while Mayfair owns 36.5 per cent.
