Purpose, values & strategy

A growing world needs sustainable answers.

In Novozymes, we challenge traditional industrial thinking and ask the world to Rethink Tomorrow. Novozymes strives to have great impact by balancing good business for our customers, and our company while spearheading environmental and social change.


In Novozymes we are driven by a purpose. A purpose that is worth getting out of bed for in the morning. It is our call to action. Our purpose signals that we want to make a sustainable difference in the world.


Our four values guide our everyday behavior. They reflect our spirit and lay the foundation of our success. As Zymers, we believe in daring to lead, connecting to create, trusting and earning the trust of others and unlocking passion.


Partnerships, alliances and networks of the willing are the way to make a difference in a world full of complex problems and large opportunities. In Novozymes, we know that we cannot do it alone. Our strategy is Partnering for Impact – making measurable improvements for our customers, partners, and the world.
