Strengthening sustainable procurement practices

We continue to strengthen the company’s global governance systems, preparing systematic sustainable procurement practices group-wide. Our focus on environmentally sound offices resulted in the development of one of the first near-zero-emission commercial buildings in China.

Targets and results

The sustainability and ethical standards to which DNV GL is committed also extend to our suppliers. Our current ambition is to fully implement a consistent sustainable procurement programme which will enable us to effectively engage with our suppliers worldwide and monitor their performance.

Approach

DNV GL’s Supplier Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for suppliers and is aligned with the UN Global Compact’s ten principles on human rights, labour standards, environmental performance and anti-corruption. We procure most services and products locally. The responsibility for governing documents, strategies, processes, tools and global procurement projects is organized centrally in our Global Shared Services unit.

Review

In 2016, we continued to implement sustainable procurement practices. The review of all relevant governance documents was completed and software which will enable the tracking, monitoring and reporting of supplier data was selected. Moreover, an agreement for yet another green office building was entered into.
