Audited by PwC

Reporting and audits

The Novozymes Report 2008 has been audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC), which also examined and assessed the report on the basis of the AA1000 Assurance Standard.

The printed English version of the Report does not contain the annual report for the parent company, Novozymes A/S.

The annual report for Novozymes A/S can be found online under ”Financial statements for Novozymes A/S.” The audit covers financial, social, and environmental data, and PwC has also audited all content within “Report,” “Outlook,” and “Management” in The Novozymes Report 2008. Online, these are marked “Audited by PwC.” See also the statements in the report.

PwC has not audited the section of the report found online under the heading “Supplementary reporting.” “Supplementary reporting” includes our “Communication on progress” with respect to Global Compact, our reports based on the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), and data from our activities in Brazil, China, Denmark, India, Sweden, the UK, and the USA.

The report has been produced in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS), the Danish Financial Statements Act, and the additional requirements of NASDAQ OMX Copenhagen A/S for presentation of financial statements by listed companies. It has also been prepared as an element of Novozymes' reporting according to the Global Reporting Initiative G3 Guidelines for Sustainability Reporting.

In the event of any discrepancy between the printed report and the online report, the printed report shall take precedence.
