Novozymes named top employer

FRANKLINTON -- Science Magazine ranked Novozymes number one on its recently released annual Top Employers list.

The magazine polled employees in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, and related industries to determine the 20 best employers globally.

The key driving characteristics of the ranking were 'Innovative leader in the industry,' 'Treats employees with respect' and 'Is socially responsible.'

Novozymes was one of six companies in the magazine's top 20 that did not have a ranking the year before.

"We are very proud to be recognized as the best employer by this leading scientific journal," said Per Falholt, chief science officer at Novozymes.

"We develop biological answers to some of the greatest challenges of our time. Our growing world needs more food, better farming, renewable energy, and clean air and water.

"Our products really make a difference, and that is a great motivation for everyone at Novozymes."

Novozymes has been a pioneer in the field of industrial biotechnology since the 1940s.

One in five of its 6,500 employees work in research and development (R&D), with the company's main research centers located in Denmark, China, the U.S. and India. Its North American headquarters is Franklinton.

As the world's largest maker of industrial enzymes and microorganisms, Novozymes' biotechnology is used by companies around the world to save energy, water and raw materials in the production of a wide range of products -- from laundry detergents, textiles and beer, to biofuels, animal feed and crops.

Last year, the worldwide application of Novozymes' biological solutions helped its customers reduce their CO emissions by an estimated 60 million tons, equivalent to taking 25 million cars off the road, company officials said.

Science Magazine is the academic journal of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and one of the world's top scientific publications.
