Novo Nordisk

The Novo Nordisk led, Cities Changing Diabetes programme is a public private partnership initiated in 2014 by University College London, Steno Diabetes Center Copenhagen and Novo Nordisk. Today it counts partnerships in 22 cities around the world.

The way cities are built and run are vital to population health and planetary health. This makes cities the front line for fighting diabetes and taking climate action.

Novo Nordisk and C40 are partnering to generate new insights into a range of benefits of climate action – in particular the health of city populations. At the heart of the partnership lies the pivotal role of cities in the fight against climate change and poor health.

The VELUX Group’s products create better living, working and learning environments for people by making the most of daylight and fresh air through the roof. Based on the knowledge we have acquired from more than 75 years in business, we strive to improve awareness about how good indoor climates in buildings can contribute to good health and well-being for the people who occupy them. In our Healthy Homes Barometer, an annual independent research-based report, we investigate the effect unhealthy buildings have on people’s health. We believe that creating healthier buildings, where people spend up to 90% of their time, is key to achieving sustainable, likeable and not least liveable cities. As a C40 sponsor, we are furthering the dialogues and knowledge sharing that is necessary to lead to partnerships, and thereby actions, to improve the cities of the world.
