Through prudent use of nature’s resources since the early 1990s, Novo Nordisk has achieved improvements in eco-productivity. Efficient resource consumption reduces environmental impacts and lowers costs for both the company and society.
Novo Nordisk’ business philosophy is one of balancing financial, social and environmental considerations – we call it ‘The Triple Bottom Line’. Environmental responsibility implies working to continuously improve the company's environmental performance by setting high objectives and integrating environmental considerations into daily business activities. To ensure that environmental priorities are attuned with stakeholders' and society's concerns and requirements, the company maintains an open dialogue with stakeholders, communicates its activities, and reports annually on its performance.
