We are a global healthcare company, founded in 1923 and headquartered just outside Copenhagen, Denmark.
Our purpose is to drive change to defeat diabetes and other serious chronic diseases such as obesity, and rare blood and rare endocrine diseases.
We do so by pioneering scientific breakthroughs, expanding access to our medicines and working to prevent and ultimately cure the diseases we treat.
We employ more than 59,000 people in 80 countries around the world, and market our products in 170 countries.
We are the first pharmaceutical company to use 100% renewable power in all our global production facilities. We are proud but also motivated to go even further.
With our Circular for Zero strategy, we are starting a journey to achieve zero environmental impact in all our business activities.
We will collaborate proactively with suppliers to reduce the environmental impact across our supply chain, cut CO2 emissions from all our operations and transportation, and solve the end-of-life product waste challenge to eliminate waste.
