Novo Nordisk applies different mechanisms to ensure assurance. The assurance processes are not just important to us but also to our stakeholders. It is important that what we report is material, complete and done in a responsive manner to our stakeholders.
We published our first environmental report in 1994, and was the first company in Denmark and one of the first internationally to do so. Since 2004, we have been reporting on our business performance in one, inclusive document, the annual report in order to reflect the company's objective to 'strive to conduct our activities in a financially, environmentally and socially responsible way'.
