The SDGs have guided the development of our long-term targets for fulfilling the company’s stated purpose of finding biological answers for better lives in growing world. Novozymes is among the forerunners in connecting business targets with the SDGs, which will put us in a better position to deal with future issues such as tougher environmental regulations, a price on carbon emissions, and the rising cost of natural resources like water.
  

“We know these factors will impact Novozymes’ business environment in the future, and by considering those aspects in how we prioritize our innovation pipeline, we will make it stronger,” says Pedersen. “Our targets will tell us whether we’re succeeding in helping the world become more sustainable, while also ensuring our company’s continued growth.”
 

Enabling resource efficiency with biosolutions

Novozymes' products enable our customers and thereby the world to "make more from less”.
Our enzymes and microorganisms make it possible to use natural resources more efficiently, use significantly less energy, reduce the use of chemicals and produce less waste compared with traditional manufacturing systems. For example, when juice manufacturers around the world use Novozymes’ biosolutions they can squeeze more juice out of their apples, pears, stone fruits, grapes, and berries. When leather companies use Novozymes' biosolutions in their production of everything from gloves to upholstery they can use less harsh chemicals. Industry after industry is using our biosolutions to become more efficient in their use of raw materials.
