Det Norske Vertias (USA) Inc., earned the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) prestigious ENERGY STAR, the national symbol for superior energy efficiency and environmental protection. Commercial buildings and industrial plants that rate in the top 25 percent of facilities in the nation for energy efficiency may qualify for the ENERGY STAR.

Det Norske Vertias (USA) Inc., is pleased to accept EPA's ENERGY STAR in recognition of our energy efficiency efforts," said Peter Bjerager, Director of Operations "Through this achievement, we have demonstrated our commitment to our vision: “Global impact for a safe and sustainable future” and our purpose: “To safeguard life, property and the environment”, while also lowering our energy costs. We improved our energy performance by managing energy strategically across our entire organization and by making cost-effective improvements to our building(s). Det Norske Vertias’s Katy office has saved 34% in annual energy bills and prevented greenhouse gas emissions equal to the electricity use from 64 households for a year.
