A fundamental part of our purpose and vision is to have a positive impact on the environment through the services we provide. We also continuously work to manage and reduce the environmental footprint of our own operations and the personal footprint of our employees.

Implementing a common environmental management system was an important achievement in 2014. As a signatory to the UN Global Compact, taking a precautionary approach to managing our environmental impact is deeply embedded in how we operate. See our 2014 Annual Report and the pages below how we monitor and manage our environmental footprint. 

Reporting on performance

Annual environmental reporting is mandatory for all locations with 40 or more employees, and for all laboratories and test sites.  A few locations have either reported only energy consumption or generated waste. Figures for 2012 and 2013 includes only DNV legacy.
