Global Reporting Initiative

Novo Nordisk supports the GRI – as an Organisational Stakeholder – and its initiatives to drive sustainability reporting. Novo Nordisk reports – and has done so since 2002 – in accordance with the Global Reporting Initiative Sustainability Reporting Guidelines.

The 2011 reporting cycle is using G3 Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. The Guidelines provide a disclosure framework of management approaches and performance against indicators for economic, environmental and social impacts, human rights, product responsibility and societal activities, as well as a company profile.

All key performance data, reported in the Annual Report are subject to independent review in accordance with international standards. On the basis of an analysis of the GRI guidance and requirements, we are declaring an Application Level of A+ as defined by GRI for the Novo Nordisk Annual Report 2011 and additional online information.



In this section a description of the organisational profile, report profile, and the report scope and boundary according to the indicators are found.
