Sustainable procurement

Purchasing sustainably

We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that they operate according to our supplier Code of Conduct and in line with our sustainability goals.

Why it matters

Working in more than 100 countries, our operations are supported by a global network of suppliers and subcontractors. DNV GL’s vision – ‘global impact for a safe and sustainable future’ – applies as much to our supply chain as it does to our own operations and the services we provide. We work closely with our suppliers to ensure that they operate according to our supplier Code of Conduct and in line with our sustainability goals.

We follow a consistent procurement programme that allows us to monitor our suppliers’ progress towards achieving sustainable operations. We continue to strengthen our approach by installing systematic procurement policies and practices Group-wide.

Progress 2018

In 2018, we continued with sustainable procurement projects initiated in 2017. This included completing a review and update of all relevant governance documents for procurement. All procurement staff were trained in the revised policies and procedures, and new staff attended a two-day training programme on procurement governance. We also completed the installation of software for tracking, monitoring and reporting supplier data.

Looking ahead

We have launched a global procurement programme to establish common processes, tools and systems for the whole company. The new programme, which will run through 2019, aims to improve the efficiency, quality and digitalization of procurement across the company. The key objectives are to:
 
  • Set up a standardized procurement process across DNV GL.
  • Improve supplier monitoring and management.
  • Ensure that procurement activities comply with DNV GL procurement policies, our sustainability goals and local regulations.
