Copenhagen, Denmark - March 7, 2022. At Novozymes, we are deeply saddened by the devastating war in Ukraine. Our deepest empathy and concerns are with the innocent people of Ukraine. This is a terrible human tragedy.


Through the Novo Nordisk Foundation, Novozymes has contributed to donations totaling DKK 55 million to emergency relief efforts in response to the war. Novozymes will donate an additional DKK 1 million to support refugees coming to Denmark.

Supply to Russia and Belarus

The war has led to serious disruptions in supply chain and trading conditions. Under these conditions of war, Novozymes will not be accepting any further orders for products by our Russian and Belarusian customers and we will not sell or ship products to Russia or Belarus.

Mobilization and support

Many of our employees have expressed a strong desire to help the people impacted by the war. We have encouraged them to share their ideas for how best to support people impacted by the war and will pledge worktime and funding to realize these initiatives.
