A year of growth

In 2023, DNV experienced significant financial growth and welcomed more than 2,000 new employees, many of them through strategic acquisitions. Spanning acquisitions within the fields of cyber security, energy, and aquaculture, these new investments contributed to DNV’s record-breaking growth in 2023 while also expanding our service offering, talent base, and digital capabilities.

Building one of Europe’s fastest-growing cyber security services businesses

In 2023, DNV took a major next step in our cyber security growth journey by acquiring Nixu, a market-leading cyber security services company serving Northern Europe. The EUR 98 million deal created one of Europe’s fastest-growing cyber security services businesses.

Enabling reliable emissions reporting for shipping

Emissions reporting is set to become one of the most impactful changes to the maritime industry. Under the EU Emissions Trading System, the responsible shipping company will be required to surrender EU Allowances based on a vessel’s annual level of emissions. To ensure these agreements can proceed on a trusted basis, DNV launched Emissions Connect, an emissions-data verification engine and data management platform designed to help the maritime industry accurately assess and work with emissions data.
