To support the ongoing integration of sustainability into all relevant business practices, we have established a cross-functional Corporate Sustainability Board.
Integrating sustainability with a Sustainability Board
Our Sustainability Board (SB) consists of high-level representation from all key functions, reporting directly to Novozymes’ Executive Management.
The SB is responsible for the development of Novozymes’ sustainability strategy and targets combining the functional business strategies with stakeholder insights. The SB is our vehicle for integrating sustainability both in high level-decisions and into our day-to-day business activities. Members are Vice Presidents from key functions such as R&D, Sales and marketing and Finance.
To help facilitate the anchoring and integration of of sustainability in the business, the Corporate Sustainability Department assists the SB in the development and implementation of Novozymes’ corporate sustainability strategy. The department comprises specialists in the fields of social responsibility, human rights, ethics, environment, and life cycle assessment. We also have regional sustainability managers in China, the United States, Brazil and India.
