Catalyzing energy savings

At Novozymes we have set ambitious goals for decoupling our growth from energy consumption, for using renewable energy sources, and for succesfully implementing our climate strategy.

For Novozymes’ production facilities globally we have defined energy-reducing projects and initiated usage of low-carbon energy sources such as wind turbines and bioenergy, replacing energy from conventional sources.
Projects in 2009 reduced the CO2 emissions from Novozymes by 17,000 tons, which is equivalent to more than 7,000 cars in the EU.
Novozymes' ambitious goals:
  • Improve energy/CO2 efficiency by 50% by 2015 (EU target is a 20% improvement by 2020)
  • 50% of our energy consumption must be renewable/carbon neutral by 2020 (EU target is 20% renewable energy by 2020)
