Event description

Description

The healthcare sector currently generates vast amounts of waste, and consequently, the impact of transitioning to more circular production methods is huge. Significantly, startups and young companies are poised to benefit from leveraging these strategies early on.

As a leader in diabetes care working with more than 29.2 million patients globally, Novo Nordisk is striving to set new standards in an industry where institutional barriers are complicating a green transition. Even a marginal improvement in the carbon footprint of Novo Nordisk devices would have a monumental effect, but their vision is bold: zero environmental impact.

This ambition will bring to life key innovations of tomorrow, allowing Novo Nordisk to spearhead the movement towards sustainable healthcare. During this fireside chat at MATTER, Kenneth Strømdahl, senior vice president of global device research and development, will share how Novo Nordisk focuses on the corporate commitment to circularity, embracing environmentally sustainable design principles and collaborating with companies in multiple sectors with the same goal in mind.

Following the fireside chat, attendees will have the opportunity to ask questions and hear from leaders at Novo Nordisk and MATTER about the 2019-20 Novo Nordisk Innovation Challenge. The challenge seeks to explore, design and co-develop sustainable approaches to Novo Nordisk business practices. Submissions are due by December 13 at 11:59pm Central European Time.
