DNV GL becomes an approved ResponsibleSteel certification body

We are delighted to announce that our fourth audit firm DNV GL has recently joined AFNOR Certification, ERM CVS and GUTcert as an approved certification body.

“We are delighted to be recognised as a key partner in the journey towards a more responsible steel industry by becoming approved by ResponsibleSteel™ to certify steel makers globally. As a purpose driven organisation, deeply committed to SDG 13 climate action, we are proud to contribute to reducing the climate impacts of one of the world’s most fundamental industries,” says Paul McNellis, Head of Assessment and Advisory in DNV GL-Business Assurance.

While Alison Lucas, Executive Director of ResponsibleSteel says “DNV GL was one of the first organisations to join ResponsibleSteel™ as an associate member and has provided much needed technical support to ResponsibleSteel™ during our early set-up phase. We are very pleased that they remain committed to our Vision and Mission and have now become approved as a ResponsibleSteel™ certification body”.

With our first audits due to be completed within the next 6 months and an uptick in membership in 2020, there will be a need for organisations such as DNV GL to help ResponsibleSteel meet its goals. To find out more about their ResponsibleSteel business offerings please click here.
