Cultivating a sustainable workplace is key to the future of our company and the patients we serve. Therefore, we have set an aspiration to be a sustainable employer but what do we mean and why do we attach such importance to it?
Novo Nordisk has prioritised sustainability for many years, long before I joined the company in 2018. Our environmental strategies span decades and we have a long list of programmes under our social responsibility umbrella – for instance, it has been almost 20 years since we established the World Diabetes Foundation for vulnerable populations. While such initiatives remain cornerstones of our efforts to be a sustainable business, we also believe internal initiatives are crucial.
