Environment, Health and Safety (EHS)

Environment, Health & Safety

Environmental, Health & Safety 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 from the production of energy, also preventing any contact with chemicals.

Environmental consciousness

Our dedicated EHS department encourages the environmental, health and safety consciousness of our staff, by ensuring that each member has the necessary skills and knowledge to minimise environmental impact and secure a healthy and safe environment while on the job.

We are DS/EN ISO 14001 as well as OHSAS 18001 certified and to ensure a healthy working environment we have implemented an Environmental Policy and Occupational Safety Policy.

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.
