DNV presents environmentally friendly vision

Singapore: Classification society Det Norske Veritas (DNV) has launched a new vision that focuses on the environment and the necessity to balance the competing needs of business and society.


The statement, titled 'Global impact for a safe and sustainable future' aims to provide its 7000 employees with direction for the company's long term growth. "At DNV, we have the purpose of safeguarding life, property and the environment," says DNV ceo Henrik Madsen. "

Through our risk management services, we strive towards this purpose every day by making an impact on our customers around the world, while improving their business performance safely and responsibly." 


Madsen believes businesses need to invest in future sustainability as the society today faces increasing problems with climate change, pollution and fast-depleting natural resources. Thus, DNV is on an aggressive drive to strengthen its knowledge and expertise base through recruitment, continuous training, research, acquisitions and other strategies.   [03/04/07]
