As a global business, we need a long-term, stable and global framework to guide future operations. Our key message to political leaders is that given a clear target, and policies and incentives to stimulate initiatives from business, business will and can deliver the solutions needed. Recognising the importance of business supporting a new global deal on climate change, Novo Nordisk was a leading force behind the World Business Summit on Climate Change in Copenhagen in May 2009.
