    NEXT A Safe and Sustainable Future (April 2014)

    Winston Churchill once noted that “the farther back you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.” Having existed for 150 years puts DNV GL in a unique position to ask the question which we set out to reflect on in this book: What’s next for a safe and sustainable future?

    Managing Risk, Building Trust (April 2014)

    The future is not what it used to be. Rising global temperatures, diminishing natural resources and deepening inequality threaten everyone’s prospects, including those yet to be born. Yet alongside these new global challenges are new innovations, solutions and opportunities that make a safe and sustainable future possible: a world where nine billion people can thrive while living within the environmental limits of the planet. In this theme, we set a vision towards this future. We analyse the barriers to change and detail the concrete actions that governments, business and civil society must take together if the obstacles are to be overcome and the opportunities for safer, smarter and greener growth are to be seized.

    The Arctic – the next risk frontier (April 2014)

    The Arctic offers a preview of a new paradigm for business: harsher environments, higher public scrutiny and a greater need to engage with stakeholders. As industries enter the Arctic, understanding, communicating and managing risks will be essential both to earning social license to operate and minimising the environmental impacts of their activities.

    From Technology to Transformation (April 2014)

    Existing technology is already unlocking safer, smarter, greener solutions for powering our economy, transporting our goods, caring for our sick and feeding our growing population. But history shows that transformative technologies – from the automobile to the internet – can take decades to reach scale. And time is one resource we do not have. How can we accelerate the deployment and commercialisation of sustainable technologies while ensuring they are introduced safely into society?

    Moving beyond business as usual (December 2013)

    The world is on the wrong track. Business as usual will take us to a future that is neither safe, sustainable nor prosperous for human kind. What do we need to do to change course? On November 8 2013, DNV GL hosted a roundtable with leading sustainability thinkers and activists to discuss the most important actions the world needs to take now to move beyond business as usual and speed up the transition to a safe and sustainable future. The outcome from the discussion is presented in this report.
