Danish healthcare company Novo Nordisk has signed a climate agreement with the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Denmark, under which Novo Nordisk pledges to make a substantial reduction of its CO2 emissions. Novo Nordisk is the first company in Denmark to sign WWF's Climate Savers Programme, the second in Europe and the tenth internationally. Other companies which have made the agreement include IBM, Johnson & Johnson and Lafarge.

Lise Kingo, executive vice president at Novo Nordisk says: "We have committed ourselves to be a sustainable company which does something about large global problems such as climate, globalisation and human rights. We don't think it is only a matter for the UN and other international organisations. All companies who are players on the global market have to address global challenges. And if you don't take responsibility, you will feel it, because it will be expensive".

Under the agreement, Novo Nordisk will reduce its CO2 emissions from burning fossil fuels and its consumption of electricity, heating and steam by 10% by 2014 in relation to its 2004 emissions. Without the new agreement, the growth of Novo Nordisk would have resulted in CO2 emissions increasing by 67% by 2014. The news was reported by financial daily newspaper Børsen.
