Communication on Progress in implementing the United Nations Global Compact principles
Statement of continued support
When we formulated Novozymes' values and mission statement (The Novozymes Touch), we decided to become a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. Not least, this commitment is a natural extension of Novozymes' longstanding efforts to integrate sustainability into our way of doing business.
In accordance with the guidelines from the United Nations Global Compact Office, we report on our progress in implementing the Global Compact principles again this year. This communication is a useful means of increasing the credibility of Novozymes’ commitment to the principles. It enables us to document that we 'walk the talk'.
We are grateful that Novozymes’ communication was highlighted as a notable example by the United Nations Global Compact Office again in 2006. Novozymes also benefited from participating in a number of events under the auspices of the Global Compact again this year. We continue to regard the Global Compact principles and the dialogue about them as very important.
Steen Riisgaard, President and CEO
