The Novo Nordisk Way

The Novo Nordisk Way is a set of guiding principles which underpins every decision we make.

It describes who we are, how we work and what we want to achieve, and sets a clear direction for our company and our employees. 

Ultimately, it’s a promise we make to each other - and to the millions of patients all over the world who rely on our products to lead full and healthy lives.

 

 

Novo Nordisk Way is our way

In 1923, our Danish founders began a journey to change diabetes. Today, we are thousands of employees across the world with the passion, skills and commitment to drive change to defeat diabetes and other serious chronic diseases.

  • We aim to lead in all disease areas in which we are active.
  • Our key contribution is to discover and develop innovative biological medicines and make them accessible to patients throughout the world.
  • Growing our business and delivering competitive financial results is what allows us to help patients live better lives, offer an attractive return to our shareholders and contribute to our communities.
  • Our business philosophy is one of balancing financial, social and environmental considerations - we call it 'The Triple Bottom Line'.
  • We are open and honest, ambitious and accountable, and treat everyone with respect.
  • We offer opportunities for our people to realise their potential.
  • We never compromise on quality and business ethics.

Every day, we must make difficult choices, always keeping in mind, what is best for patients, our employees and our shareholders in the long run.

It's our way. It's the Novo Nordisk Way.
