Environment and Safety

Environment & Safety

Environmental considerations are an integrated part of our every day work. Our main concerns include reducing atmospheric emissions of organic solvents from the production process, and carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxide from the production of energy.

Environmental consciousness

Our dedicated Environmental Department encourages the environmental consciousness of our staff, by ensuring that each member has the necessary skills and knowledge to minimise environmental impact while on the job. We have implemented an Environmental Policy, and we are DS/EN ISO 14001 as well as OHSAS 18001 certified.

The world’s most sustainable company

Novo Nordisk ranked No. 1 of the Global 100 most sustainable companies. This was announced at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland in January 2012.

Triple bottom line

As a Novo Nordisk company, we work with the “Triple Bottom Line” principle, the CO2 Reduction program, and follow Novo Nordisk’s People Policy.

Novo Nordisk Triple Bottom Line

We strive to conduct our activities in a financially, environmentally and socially responsible way. This implies that any decision should always seek to balance three considerations: Is it economically viable? Is it socially responsible? And is it environmentally sound?

This principle ensures that decision-making balances financial growth with corporate responsibility, short-term gains with long-term profitability and shareholder return with other stakeholder interests.
