Our performance in 2022

DNV recorded year-on-year growth of 16.6% in 2022. Strong organic growth from all business areas was the main driver, while acquisitions in key areas contributed 2.3% of revenue growth. We are well placed to achieve our 45% revenue growth target set out in our five-year strategy that was launched in 2021.

Trust in DNV reaches record levels

82% of respondents to our 2022 brand survey trust DNV, up from 78% in the last survey in 2018. The survey comprised 5,000 responses from a representative sample of customers and prospects around the globe and across our markets.
The result signals not only a healthy DNV brand, but also the growing importance of assurance providers as providers of trust while many other institutions are experiencing a drop in trust.

The world’s leading classification society

For the seventh year running, DNV was named the top classification society by the leading maritime newspaper Lloyd’s List.
