Sustainability is at the heart of the Novus business. It is a part of the strategy. Novus’s customers are facing ongoing challenges to produce safe, affordable food with the least possible insult to the environment. As a partner, Novus must provide solutions which not only solve customer pains, but do so sustainably.
All of Novus’s products are designed to deliver an economic advantage to feed and animal producers.
Novus’s five core technology platforms aim to improve animal performance and productivity, reduce feed costs, and improve the quality and marketability of final protein products.
Novus invests in the continual development and engagement of its employees, in order for the company to deliver on its vision and mission.
Novus engages with multiple global and regional organizations, such as the United Way, to which Novus employees contributed over $100,000 USD in 2015.
The long-term viability of the industry requires partnership and understanding of stakeholder needs.
Novus recently joined The Sustainability Consortium, a multi-stakeholder organization aimed at improving the sustainability of consumer goods, such as food.
Though Novus’s primary focus is animal health and nutrition, the health and well-being of humans, our consumers, is equally important.
ESM Technologies, a joint venture partner of Novus Nutrition Brands, a subsidiary of Novus’s Stratum Nutrition Division, provides an innovative solution to what would otherwise be a waste product of the food industry in the form of human health supplements.
As a responsible member of the food supply chain, Novus aims to reduce its own impact on the environment in its daily operations.
A project was implemented to reduce the impact of shipping a key Novus enzyme product—CIBENZA® DP100. The change was found to have the potential to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from shipping that product by over 38 percent.
Novus participates in the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) and reports in accordance with the G4 framework (at core level). With the Novus Sustainability Priorities Compass, we aligned our priorities to the Material Aspects defined by the GRI G4 guidelines. The yearly report data is compiled and published in an annual Novus Sustainability Report. Our report consists of two documents- the complete GRI Content Index and the shortened At-A-Glance Brochure.
