The Triple Bottom Line.

The Triple Bottom Line (TBL) is the Novo Nordisk way of doing business. We believe that a healthy economy, environment, and society are fundamental to long-term business success. We are one of only four companies in the world who have incorporated our philosophy into our company bylaws.

Everything we do and every decision we make is informed by the three pillars of TBL:

Social impact.

Social responsibility is about caring for people. This applies to the people who depend on our products, as well as to our employees. We work to continuously integrate social, health, and safety considerations into our daily business.


Environmental responsibility.

Environmental soundness addresses our impact on the external environment – and we've taken a concerted approach to ensure that our efforts to be green pay off.

The campus of our LEED Silver certified U.S. Headquarters demonstrates our approach to being responsible stewards of our environment, driven by the company’s commitment to help people live healthy lives, and consistent with Novo Nordisk's TBL business model.

Our campus utilized recycled and locally-sourced materials, and is fully powered by renewable energy from wind, solar, and hydro sources—a feature that is expected to lead to a 30 percent reduction in energy costs.


Financial performance.

Economic viability is about managing the business in a way that secures growth and value creation, and delivers competitive performance in these areas. Investing in our employees contributes to our award-winning workplace and supports our goal of delivering innovative achievements.
