Global Compact

Statement of continued support
At Novozymes, sustainability is a fundamental part of the way we make decisions, set our priorities, and conduct our business. We believe that long-term business success is linked to the integration of environmental, social, and governance issues with corporate management and day-to-day operations. Novozymes’ biotechnology-based innovation offers an environmentally friendly, resource-efficient, and cost-effective alternative to traditional means of addressing industry needs.

As we are steadily growing our business internationally, we are constantly reaching new and diverse stakeholders. Accordingly, we seek to proactively address rising global expectations, and implement environmental and social aspects in our business and within our sphere of influence. 

Novozymes has been a signatory to the Global Compact since 2002. To us, the compact represents an opportunity to state our commitment and to be transparent and accountable to our stakeholders. Consequently, we welcome the opportunity to communicate our commitment and progress again this year.
