DNV has joined forces with the Economist and invites you to the Arctic Summit 12 March in Oslo, Norway. 200 high-level participants will answer the questions; what to expect for trade, energy and the environment? What will the Arctic resemble in 2050? DNV asks if the Arctic risks can be managed?
As the Arctic ice-cap is melting, this resource-rich region is changing faster than anywhere on Earth.
Those states who have territory within the Arctic circle (the US, Canada, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia and Sweden) understandably have a considerable interest in its future, but other countries are also turning their attentions to the Arctic.
Henrik O. Madsen, Group Chief Executive of DNV, says: “DNV suggests that in order to allow for commercial activity in the Arctic, the safety level must be equivalent to – or better than – the best performance in the industry today. Going into the Arctic requires something extraordinary. It is a balancing act, where risks should be managed in close cooperation between stakeholders. To achieve a responsible development there is also a need for improved technologies in addition to a transparent and holistic risk-based framework combined with a step-wise approach.”
