Financial performance

Organic sales growth


EBIT margin




Strong business, growth a challenge

Novozymes posted strong earnings but only moderate sales growth in 2015. The long-term organic sales growth target has been revised to reflect the negative impact on sales growth of the uncertainties stemming from lower commodity prices and slower growth in emerging markets. All other long-term targets are intact.
