Turning risk into opportunities
Behind every risk there is an opportunity. In this episode, Sven Mollekleiv, Senior Vice President for Sustainability at DNV GL, explains how DNV GL’s Global Opportunity Report focuses on turning risks into opportunities to support sustainability.
In this fascinating and current episode, Sven shares with us how DNV GL have used our core skills of identifying, assessing and managing risk to develop the Report, alongside UN Global Compact and Sustania. We discuss the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (‘SDGs’), created by the General Assembly to achieve sustainable development for all, and consider which four of these 17 goals are falling behind their 2030 targets. With these four SGDs forming the basis of the Report, Sven touches on two key topics in our discussion: Keeping it Cool and Reuse to Repower. He explains why there is a growing need for cooling systems to become more energy and cost efficient; and highlights several companies re-purposing old batteries to increase their lifespan and use. Finally, Sven, a panelist at the Energy Industry Conference 2018 also held in Dubai, shares the key messages from that conference, and discusses why businesses must be part of the smarter solutions of the future.
