Norway’s Prime Minister Erna Solberg visited DNV GL Høvik yesterday September 16. Group President & CEO Henrik Madsen was host.
“The Prime Minister was both enthusiastic and interested in DNV GL’s views on climate-friendly technologies in the industries we serve. We hope that our input on technological opportunities will be useful in the Norwegian government's work aimed at promoting a greener economy,” said Henrik Madsen when the hour long visit was over. As well as the Prime Minister herself, Norway’s Minister of Climate and Environment, Tine Sundoft, participated in the meeting.
A presentation of DNV GL and selected technologies was followed by a positive discussion, to which Group Executive Vice President & COO Remi Eriksen and DNV GL - Oil & Gas CEO Elisabeth Tørstad also contributed. Prime Minister Solberg showed interest in several important areas, including technology for transport, offshore wind energy, and buildings.
"We think it's an exiting opportunity to give input to key decision makers, such as Prime Minister and the Minister of Climate and the Environment, on our involvement in developing technology for a low carbon society. We had a fruitful dialogue with our guests and we believe and hope that we inspired them in their work for a more sustainable future," says Tore Høifødt, Director of Media for DNV GL Group.
