Implementation of preventive and disciplinary actions
All concerns raised will be thoroughly investigated by specialist personnel in accordance with our internal procedures. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken on the basis of the conclusions reached.

People & Organization (HR) is consulted in all investigations where an employee is potentially subject to disciplinary actions.

 
Reporting
Novozymes has increased its internal awareness of fraud, including corruption and intellectual-property infringement. Executive Leadership, the Board of Directors and the Audit Committee receive reporting on all fraud investigations on a quarterly basis.

Novozymes reports information related to substantiated fraud cases in the annual report. See The Novozymes Report 2014. Novozymes embraces responsible business behavior as well as openness and honesty about our actions.
