Organizing sustainability in Novozymes
Sustainability has been on our agenda for many years. This means that former hot sustainability topics are already a natural part of our business and management practices. More information about these topics can be found in our positions.
We integrate sustainability in our business at three different levels; in-house, in the relationship with supply chain partners and in collaboration with our customers. This combined with a general awareness of including multiple stakeholders has created a successful setup to organize Novozymes sustainability efforts.
