Communication on Progress 2018

Learn about our commitment to United Nations Global Compact


Statement of continued support by Lars Fruergaard J?rgensen,?President & chief executive officer

We remain committed to the principles of responsible business conduct promoted by the United Nations Global Compact and support broader UN goals, including the Sustainable Development Goals.

The UN Global Compact principles are consistent with Novo Nordisk’s Triple Bottom Line business principle, which guides me and my colleagues’ decision-making and actions. We do business in a financially, socially and environmentally responsible way. This is an integral part of our ambition to be a sustainable business.

This 'Communication on Progress' guides readers to the sections on where we account for our actions in accordance with the requirements as a participant to the UN Global Compact.

Here we present our approach to, and results within the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption for 2018, and an update on our actions in contribution to achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals.

This information complements the contents in our integrated Annual Report.

We hope you will find it an interesting read.
