Since 2018, Novo Nordisk Pharmatech is considered a CO2 neutral company. This environmental improvement is due to an agreement from 2015 on energy distribution, ensuring that Novo Nordisk Pharmatech is only supplied with renewable energy produced by windmills. Furthermore, in 2018, another agreement was made regarding our gas consumption, which now comes from Biogas.
This means that Novo Nordisk Pharmatech has zero CO2 emissions from the company’s energy consumption.
In 2019, Novo Nordisk Pharmatech committed to Novo Nordisk’s Circular for Zero environmental strategy, meaning the company strives toward having zero environmental impact by 2030. Circular for Zero was implemented by carrying out awareness and idea-generating workshops with every department within the company and established local Circular for Zero 2025 targets.
In 2020, Novo Nordisk Pharmatech mapped the suppliers’ CO2 emissions and started a dialogue. As a result, by 2030, Novo Nordisk Pharmatech will require that all our suppliers procure using 100% renewable energy. Furthermore, in 2020, Novo Nordisk Pharmatech has established ten electrical car-charging stations, started the process for a paperless office, and have planned to substitute some of the most hazardous chemicals in our manufacturing for more environmentally friendly alternatives.
