DNV GL is a life property safeguarding and environmental company founded 150 years ago. 70% of DNV GL’s business is energy-related and demonstrating an understanding of the ongoing energy transition is of critical importance to both DNV GL and its customers. infogr8 created a best-in-class series of reports using beautiful data visualisations to tell the important story of the future of energy for DNV GL.


  • Reinforce DNVs position as a thought-leader by creating a standout best in class report

  • Create a standout report as part of their inaugural ‘Energy Transition Outlook’, outlining the growth in green energy solutions and the decline in coal, oil, and gas.



  • The teams at DNV GL had amassed a wealth of deep research and were seeking a creative delivery solution.

  • They needed to present their findings visually in a distinctive style, reinforcing their independent voice.
