The annual report is a large and very demanding project that engages globally. It speaks to all associations, customers and especially to its 16,000 employees in over 100 countries.

In 2015 the challenge is to show a first full year of operations for the merged DNV GL. And together with the fact that both DNV and Germanischer Lloyd has 150 years of experience as classification societies, a lot of perspectives are at hand: Both the long lines and the brief moments, the comprehensive overviews and the little details – in the past and for the future – together they formed the basis for many of the stories in this year’s report.

Every ’landscape’ is then again ’detailed’ further more, four cases that provide additional information and explanation are selected. Using detailed fact boxes, graphs and illustrations the different details are tied together to form the big picture.
