Novo Nordisk is a global healthcare company with almost 90 years of pioneering innovation in the discovery, design, development and delivery of therapeutic proteins. We have developed leading products within diabetes care, haemophilia, growth hormone therapy and hormone replacement therapy. Currently, Novo Nordisk has a broad pipeline in diabetes and haemophilia and is expanding its discovery and development activities to include obesity and novel treatment targets for chronic autoimmune inflammatory diseases like rheumatoid arthritis.
The Triple Bottom Line is the principle that guides Novo Nordisk's way of working. It sets the foundation for long-term growth and drives our commitment to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In day-to-day practice, this implies that all decisions must seek to balance three considerations: Is it economically viable? Is it socially responsible? Is it environmentally sound? This is the Triple Bottom Line, which ensures that decision-making balances financial growth with corporate responsibility, short-term gains with long-term growth, and shareholder return with other stakeholders.
Headquartered in Denmark, Novo Nordisk employs more than 33,000 employees in 75 countries, and markets its products in over 190 countries. Our main shareholder is the Novo Nordisk Foundation.
