Novo Nordisk holds itself accountable to shareholders and other
stakeholders for its performance. The accuracy, completeness and
reliability of the information provided in the company's reporting are
verified through internal
controls, assurance and independent audits.
Reporting is a tool for shareholders to assess the actions of the Board of Directors, and
shareholders can, at general meetings, query them. Integrity and
values are the spine of Novo Nordisk's corporate culture and must
never be compromised. These are essential elements of the control
environment, affecting the design, administration, and monitoring of
other internal control components.
This is the message conveyed to employees, as laid down by the Novo Nordisk Way.
