Insights: Sustainability

A foundation for sustainability.

Lloyd's Register (LR) has a long-standing reputation for providing technical excellence and confidence that assets and businesses are safe, sustainable and dependable, which aligns with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.


As the global population grows, more people will need access to education, food, transport, energy, clean water and sanitation. This will not only cause an increase in energy demand, but will also see a need for global supply chains and sustainability of operations to be monitored and optimised.

UN sustainability goals

Governments, businesses and organisations have recognised that action must be taken and are starting to act. In September 2015, the United Nations adopted the new Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for the year 2030. The 17 goals set an ambition for an inclusive, sustainable and resilient future for everyone.

As a global company with great connections and a vast outreach across the markets, LR's expertise provides a pragmatic and flexible approach to future-proof our clients' businesses and help them tackle today's issues. We stand alongside other world and industry leaders in enabling a transition to a cleaner, more sustainable world.

Sustainability is about meeting today's needs without compromising future generations. At LR we are dedicated to making this happen.

This brochure provides an introduction to our sustainability work. It demonstrates our long-standing foundations in technology, innovation and corporate values, and introduces three key sustainability themes which are woven throughout the entire LR Group. They take the form of services to clients, joint industry projects, knowledge-sharing and research funding. These themes are directly linked to the UN SDGs, and serve as a pathway to tomorrow and a cleaner, more sustainable world.
