Susanne is VP of Corporate Sustainability and Chief Sustainability officer at Novo Nordisk. She leads the company’s efforts to be a sustainable business and is charged with oversight of corporate sustainability-driven programmes, its integrated Annual Report, stakeholder engagements and communication on the value of the company’s triple-bottom-line (TBL) business principles.

In this capacity she sets the strategic direction for the company’s positioning as a sustainability leader and a pioneer in demonstrating the long-term business value of incorporating economic, social and environmental perspectives into its market proposition.

Susanne joined the Novo Group in 2000 to ingrain the TBL principles into the business as the lens for decision-making and as a strong component of its corporate culture. Among her achievements are the successful integration of the company’s financial and sustainability reporting. Before that, she worked as a strategy and communications consultant in the field of environmental and sustainability issues management for more than a decade.

She is also adjunct professor of Corporate Sustainability at the Copenhagen Business School.
