The Novozymes Report 2022

Global challenges are queuing up. One key solution might be smaller than you think - microscopic even.  

Nevertheless, it holds the answer to solving multiple challenges at the same time. And there is so much left to discover. 


Everything we do is driven by three commitments

Accelerating towards a climate- neutral society

55 billion tonnes. That’s what our combined CO2 equivalent emissions come to in just one year. Together with our customers, we’re lowering emissions in industry and food production. We’re also removing fossil-based ingredients from everyday products and capturing carbon. All to protect the planet we love.

Transforming food systems

9.7 billion people will need food in 2050. That means we need to rethink food production from field to fork. With biosolutions, our customers are growing more per acre and ensuring better quality, more nutritious food. They’re generating less food waste and serving up plant-based and alternative proteins. This is the recipe that can help us meet our future needs.

Enabling healthier lives

In supermarkets and health stores around the world, more and more people are looking for ways to improve their wellbeing and health. Our biosolutions provide supplements for better gut health. They also make lower-sugar, higher-fiber dairy possible. And they lead to healthier baked goods. These are just some of the ways they enable healthier lives.

Turning cleaning inside out

Body grime is a mix of sweat and dead skin cells that builds up inside clothes, so they smell bad even after washing. The result? You need to buy new clothes, which is bad for the planet. Get clean clothes and a clean conscience with Pristine®.
