Our environmental approach

Over the past decade, Novo Nordisk has successfully decoupled the environmental footprint from sales, measured by CO2  emissions, energy and water.

Our environmental priorities

The production of pharmaceuticals is resource-intensive, particularly in terms of energy. Other key priorities in environmental management for Novo Nordisk are waste, climate action, the environmental footprint of our products and water consumption.


Environmental engagement & advocacy

Novo Nordisk is an active player on the global environmental scene, in particular in the field of climate change, and we engage and partner with external stakeholders to improve our environmental performance.
