The new Twitter account will serve to expand Novo Nordisk's reporting of non-financial performance and how it manages its business. The Global Triple Bottom Line (TBL) Management team behind the account intends to share financial, environmental and social responsibility news, report quarterly and annual performance and provide a platform for stakeholder dialogue on business dilemmas. The new Twitter account will further support Novo Nordisk's efforts to reach out to corporate social responsibility (CSR) practitioners, academia and key opinion leaders in sustainability, socially responsible investing (SRI) and reporting communities.

Novo Nordisk is committed to taking an active role in the social media landscape. "We have a long history of open and transparent stakeholder dialogue. Social media is an exciting new platform to further enhance our communication with stakeholders on our corporate sustainability efforts," said Susanne Stormer, Vice President of Global Triple Bottom Line Management at Novo Nordisk.

Novo Nordisk joins other healthcare peers, who are utilising social media to provide online communities and individuals with timely and more direct access to corporate sustainability resources, news and events.
