This past week, Novozymes held its biannual Capital Markets Day (CMD) event. These events are a chance for investors, analysts, and the media to meet face-to-face with Novozymes’ executive management and other senior leadership to understand progress with the business. We’ve also recently launched a new purpose and strategy – “Partnering for impact” – so this CMD event had a new twist, with some of our most important partners joining our business unit leaders to discuss business, partnership and the road ahead.
The Symposium on Biotechnology for Fuels and Chemicals (SBFC) has awarded Novozymes with its 2015 Bioeconomy Leadership Award. The award recognizes companies that “demonstrate sustained leadership excellence” in accelerating the launch of a bio-based economy.
In the ongoing debate about biofuels, it sometimes seems that confusion is the only certainty. There is a widespread lack of public understanding about everything from terminology to technology, and this can negatively impact public opinion, which is crucial to the future of this industry.
A major new report posits that if done right, bioenergy can provide major benefits for people, the economy, and the environment.
