Environment, Health & safety
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.
The correlation between sound environmental management and cost optimisation is a well-established business case for a broader business perspective. Now Novo Nordisk’s updated strategy for environment, health and safety raises the bar. The company expects to continue to increase production. This means being able to provide treatment for more patients while decreasing environmental impacts and reducing the frequency of occupational injuries.
This section includes data on Novo Nordisk’s environmental footprint and offers an insight into how we manage environmental challenges.
