Environmental impact reductions
We have chosen 2005 as the baseline year for setting targets for reducing the environmental impact from energy and water consumption and CO2 emissions. Targets for 2010 for improving resource efficiency are 30% and 20% for energy and water respectively.
In 2010, CO2 emissions are expected to be 25% lower than in 2005. The scope for this target for emission reductions is based on emissions from Novozymes’ own production sites and from energy suppliers. It is also crucial for Novozymes to look at the broader picture in order to see emissions and other forms of impact from a product life cycle perspective. In 2010, Novozymes expects to enable a 28–29 million ton reduction in CO2 emissions through the application of our products by our customers (2009: 27 million tons).
