Microphone Novo Nordisk: how the SDGs are shaping the future of corporate behaviour

The SDGs are corporate-relevant because business was involved in their inception

Susanne Stormer, vice-president corporate sustainability, Novo Nordisk, explains to Ian Welsh why the sustainable development goals seem to have caught the imagination, arguing that they provide the roadmap that business require to establish their corporate purpose.
