DNV GL and the Sustainable Development Goals

At DNV GL we believe the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) can be used to drive business value for companies. Our research and services help customers do just that.

Our research teams have forecast whether we will meet the Goals by 2030. The future of Spaceship Earth shows that no regions will meet all the Goals and no Goals will be met in all regions. It also shows that businesses can take extraordinary action to change this forecast. In the report, we highlight how 17 of our clients are doing just that.

Our Global Opportunity Explorer brings you to the frontier of sustainable innovation. Rooted in over five years of research involving 18,000 business leaders and 17 expert panels, the Explorer guides you through hundreds of sustainable solutions and market opportunities which address the SDGs. 

Here in the UK, our sustainability team works with clients daily to advance their thinking and achieve tangible results:

Trusted advisor and facilitator – We have been helping companies to understand the business relevance of SDGs and the economic opportunities they represent since the start. Our successful roundtables brought together business leaders from a range of sectors to discuss what business needs to do to deliver extraordinary action.

SDG Mapping- By mapping your strategy against the SDGs, our experts can help you understand how your existing approach contributes to attaining the goals. Are you on track? Are there gaps? Is it time for a rethink?

Business Impact Assessment- Leveraging our research capabilities, such as our ‘2030 forecast’ of global trends linked to the SDGs (Future of Spaceship Earth), our experts can identify where the biggest challenges lie for your business and where your initiatives could have the greatest impact.

Global Opportunity Assessment - We utilise years of global research to help identify where future trends will lead to opportunities for your business. Our experts can help you build the business case for your strategy, through tailored stakeholder engagement, and strategic framework development.

Strategy Implementation- We support hands-on implementation of corporate sustainability programmes, drawing on years of practical experience working with leaders in the field. By using SDGs to collaborate with other businesses, NGOs and Government on a common purpose, we can help your company demonstrate a much greater scale of contribution towards the SDGs

SDG Reporting - Our experts can advise on appropriate indicators and narrative to communicate performance against corporate strategy objectives through our SDG reporting and assurance services.
