1.1 Strategy and analysis: Novozymes’ approach to sustainability
Novozymes’ overall approach to sustainability is framed by values and commitments and is driven by our vision: “We imagine a future where our biological solutions create the necessary balance between better business, cleaner environment, and better lives.” See also Novozymes' Touch the World.
Sustainability is a fundamental part of the way we conduct our business and we strive to contribute to sustainable delevlopment and make corporate responsibility an inherent part of the way we do business.
Novozymes’ business is steadily growing worldwide, it is becoming increasingly globalized, and expanding into new markets. These changes shape our main sustainability challenges.
Novozymes provides solutions to industrial processes. Our customers increasingly demand up-to-date solutions, for example solutions that are resource efficient and low in greenhouse gas emissions. Contributing to such solutions by making use of the potential of modern biotechnology is an important driver for Novozymes.
Please see The Novozymes Report 2010. This is our annual report, which integrates sustainability reporting and more traditional accounting.
