EL Daily: Novo Nordisk Refits Headquarters for LEED Certification

In addition to all of these environmental and cost-savings benefits, the redevelopment will create more than 500 construction jobs in the Princeton area. Based on our experience in Denmark, where we recouped a $4 million investment in wind power and achieved a savings of $5 million over the past four years, we have learned that building for a sustainable future pays off. In fact, it is decisions like these that helped us to achieve more than $24 million in cost savings since 2004 and exceed our targets for energy reduction, water consumption and carbon emissions across our business, five years ahead of schedule. We hope that this latest investment – our new American headquarters – gives other companies an example of why building sustainably benefits the planet, society and shareholders.
