Novo Nordisk's history


Our business philosophy

The Triple Bottom Line -
our way of doing business


We believe that a healthy economy, environment and society are fundamental to long-term business success. This is why we manage our business in accordance with the Triple Bottom Line business principle and pursue business solutions that maximise value to our stakeholders as well as our shareholders.

In practice, this means that any decision should always seek to combine three considerations: is it financially, socially and environmentally responsible? This way, we continuously optimise our business performance and enhance our contribution to the societies we operate in.
