Novo Nordisk way of partnering

Our history tells us that creativity thrives in partnerships. We are dedicated to patient care and to our business, and we are open to a wide range of partnering models from in-licensing to sophisticated partnerships. Novo Nordisk works with a carefully defined process from opportunity identification to deal making to ensure optimal communication with our potential partners.

Novo Nordisk way of doing business

The Triple Bottom Line is the principle that guides Novo Nordisk’s way of doing business. It primes our business for long-term growth and drives our commitment to sustainable development: To meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs. In day-to-day business, 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.
