Digitalization and decarbonization
In a fast-changing world, characterised by escalating geopolitical and environmental risk, we see an urgent and growing need for our role in stimulating innovative solutions and in setting standards for safe and sustainable operations.
DNV GL continues to invest 5% of its revenues in strategic research, technology development and innovation efforts. Digitalization and decarbonization are the two megatrends defining this era of speed and complexity. Together, they are driving a relentless quest for efficiencies, and that in turn creates a growing need to ensure that efficiency gains do not compromise safety.

DNV GL is leveraging its role as an independent party with no vested interest in proprietary technologies or solutions to lead a range of joint industry projects (JIP). These projects are vital mechanisms, linking the private sector, academia and regulatory authorities in co-creating technological solutions, and global rules, standards and guidelines.
Through 2018, there were close to 100 joint industry projects active across the DNV GL group, focusing primarily on efficiency and safety. Learn more about our latest collaborative projects.
