It's how we've always done business.
Our decades-long commitment to sustainability has given us deep insights into the field. And the more we learn, the more we realize the scale of the problem.
Sustainability’s multiple, interconnected and ever-changing challenges make achieving it extremely complex. That’s why we approach the task with a mixture of ambition and humility. We know we need to aim high, so we can make real contributions to the transformational changes our world needs. But we also know we can’t do it alone. That’s why we listen, learn and work to build partnerships that unlock new opportunities.
Everything we do is driven by three commitments

“A defining moment for our world”
CEO of Novozymes
As climate, energy and food crises converge, we urgently need sustainable growth that protects the health of people and our planet. There are already solutions out there, but they can’t reach their full potential without a willingness to invest in the future.
Our CEO and President Ester Baiget explains the three key actions we need to take at this defining moment for our world.

Leading the way with science-based targets
The Science Based Targets initiative provides a clearly-defined pathway for companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reach net zero by 2050. Climate action is an integral part of our business strategy. We have been leading the way for many years. We were among the first few companies to set a validated science-based target in line with the 1.5°C pathway.
As of November 2022, Novozymes is amongst the first group of companies in the world to have committed to SBTi’s new Corporate Net-Zero Standard by having a net-zero by 2050 science-based target verified by the SBTi. While more than 2,000 companies have SBTi commitments, only about 85 companies have a net-zero science-based target verified by SBTi as per October 25, 2022.
Being a manufacturing company, we have significant climate impact in our value chain. That’s why our science-based targets cover scopes 1, 2 and 3. We’re fully committed to a net-zero future across all three scopes. There’s no time to waste.
