To support the ongoing integration of sustainability into all relevant business practices, we have established a cross-functional Sustainability Development Board.
Integrating sustainability with a Sustainability Development Board
Our Sustainability Development Board (SDB) consists of high-level representation from all key functions, reporting directly to Novozymes’ Executive Management.
The SDB is responsible for the development of Novozymes’ sustainability strategy and targets combining the functional business strategies with stakeholder insights. The SDB is our vehicle for integrating sustainability both in high level-decisions and into our day-to-day business activities. Members are Vice Presidents from key functions such as R&D, Sales & Marketing and Finance.
To help facilitate the anchoring and integration of of sustainability in the business, the Sustainability Development Department assists the SDB in the development and implementation of Novozymes’ corporate sustainability strategy. The department comprises specialists in the fields of social responsibility, human rights, ethics, environment, and life cycle assessment. We also have regional sustainability managers in China, the United States, Brazil and India.
