Novozymes ranks third in the Carbon Disclosure Project Nordic Leadership Index 2013

Novozymes continued to improve its position in the Nordic Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index, moving up two places to #3 in 2013 from #5 in 2012, with a score of 99. This is valuable recognition from 722 investors with assests of ¤87 trillion, validating our initiatives toward mitigating climate change. These results are essential in our collaboration with customers. Our biotechnological solutions save more than 50 million tons of CO2 per year. We achieved this together with our customers by applying our solutions in their products and processes. At the same time we have more than halved our own CO2 emissions (compared to 2005) through energy and CO2 saving projects. Read more about this at the CDP website.
