Bjørn K. Haugland is a Naval Architect who got the sustainability perspective when he lived in China a few years ago. He started in the oil & gas industry and then worked with quality assurance of marine operations for a couple of years, but when he saw the environmental challenges his social interest became his focal point and today Bjørn is the Chief Sustainability Officer in the entire DNV GL Group.
We discuss the changes to the industry today, how innovative the maritime industry is but how we as an integrated part of a longer supply chain needs to step up even more.
Bjørn K. Haugland thinks that the maritime industry needs more female leaders and more female engineers, which will drive innovation and communication and make sure that we attract the brightest minds to our industry.
