DNV GL Unveils Post-Merger Branding


The merger of DNV and GL in September led to the creation of DNV GL, a world leading ship and offshore classification society, a leading independent service provider in the oil and gas sector, a powerhouse in energy and renewables, and one of the world’s top three certification bodies.

“Businesses are facing increasing technological, regulatory, social and operational challenges, in a world that is becoming ever more complex,” DNV GL Group president and CEO Henrik O. Madsen said. “While at the same time, stakeholders are demanding greater accountability and transparency. To be confident they are making the right choices, both businesses and governments need an independent partner they can trust to empower their decisions,” says Group CEO Madsen.

DNV GL is making a significant and continuous investment in strategic research and development. Innovative projects are taking technology and standards to new, advanced levels in collaboration with our customers.

“It was from this broader view that our new brand strategy of our expansive, expert services and customer enablement was created. The new visual identity with the three extended lines was created to symbolize our working context of sea, land and sky,” DNV GL Group Chief Communications Officer Stefan Nerpin said.

Created from two highly respected companies whose parallel histories span almost 150 years, Nerpin is confident that the new DNV GL will “offer the businesses we serve much-needed benefits in terms of technical insight, risk management and knowledge transfer,” he says, adding, “With our combined capabilities, more than 16,000 professionals are bridging technological and operational expertise to the greater goal of creating a safer and more sustainable society. DNV GL is able to offer this broader view across more than 100 countries, sharing our expertise and bringing best practices to our customers around the world.”

The post-merger integration is progressing well and Group CEO Henrik O. Madsen says the new global entity is in “a good position to take on the first full year of operations as one company with a new brand; DNV GL. We want to build upon the knowledge and expertise throughout the group by creating new networks and learning from each other. Our goal is to make sure that we are always finding innovative solutions that create value and growth for our customers, ensuring that the world we leave behind is a better one than the one we find today,” he concludes.
