Social Responsibility at Codexis

Social Responsibility

Supporting the global workforce and communities we serve

As a socially responsible company, Codexis strives to play a positive role by fostering a culture that promotes employee volunteering to support the communities where we operate. We participate in multiple initiatives throughout the year supporting local charitable organizations, Family Giving Tree, and Second Harvest Food Bank.


Better health for people and the planet

We're committed to making manufacturing more sustainable. Our biocatalysts transform traditional manufacturing, enabling lower energy usage, less material waste, and more environmentally-friendly processes. Since our founding, we have earned three U.S. EPA Presidential Green Chemistry Challenge awards for improving the sustainability of manufacturing blockbuster drugs.

Diversity, equity & inclusion

As a company built on innovation, we know our success depends on our team's diverse opinions and experiences. Women and under-represented minorities occupy over half of our technical roles and one-third of our leadership positions. We strive for equity and inclusion beyond our company, cultivating equality and eliminating unconscious bias with our entire community – employees, partners, industries, and neighbors.
