We are one of the world’s leading certification, advisory, assurance and risk management providers. Whether strategically advising a client, certifying a company’s management system or products, providing training, or assessing supply chains, and digital assets, we enable customers and stakeholders to make critical decisions with confidence. We are committed to supporting our customers to transition and build and realize their long-term strategic goals sustainably, and collectively contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. 


The Role 


As a Principal Consultant at DNV, your role will be to lead and build our Sustainability Services team in Denmark and drive the sales growth and delivery of our sustainability services, comprising advisory, reporting and assurance services. 


Here are the key responsibilities you can expect as Principal Consultant:

  • Identify customer needs that can be served with DNV solutions 
  • Deliver tailored solutions to clients. 
  • Lead project teams and clients in delivery 
  • Direct projects 
  • Provide leadership for less experienced colleagues 
  • Responsibility for internal processes and evaluations 


The exact scope of your responsibilities will differ based on your level of seniority. However, the overall objective will be to ensure that projects are executed to meet or exceed clients' expectations, on time, on budget, and to DNV quality standards. You will also need to proactively seek to identify customer needs through project work and internal collaboration. Additionally, you will be responsible for introducing new services to existing clients and managing existing accounts.

Is this you? 


For the Principal Consultant 

We are looking for someone with a university degree in the area of sustainability, finance, environmental science, business or related field, along with a strong interest and demonstrable experience in ESG, green finance/sustainable finance. The ideal candidate will have the ability to take sustainability work into business models and a track record of delivering professional services as a trusted advisor in the domain of sustainability management.
