Novozymes' progress toward carbon reduction goal

Novozymes remains committed to a low-carbon bio-based economy in the United States and globally.


The company has pledged to save 100 million tons of CO2 emissions annually through the use of our products by 2020. As of 2016, the worldwide application of our products reduced CO2 emissions by an estimated 69 million tons.

We support stability and predictability in U.S. low carbon policies such as the Renewable Fuels Standard, the California Low Carbon Fuel Standard, and research and tax incentives for cellulosic biofuels – the lowest carbon fuels in the world. The RFS remains the only U.S. federal law with greenhouse gas reduction requirements and its success is instrumental to a low-carbon future.
