We engage with a number of communities and support work for the public good. We support projects, communities and individuals who are able to move themselves, their industry, and the world forward with the work and activities they engage in. With our charity work, we also want to support development in areas where society's resources are not sufficient to guarantee wellbeing. In line with our principles, political parties, religious movements, and company clubs cannot be among our recipients of our sponsorship support.
In recent years, our sponsoring activities have focused particularly on future pioneers – children and young people. Our sponsoring aims to increase the wellbeing of young people and children and to help them enjoy sports and mobility.

Sponsoring Neste Rally Finland for over 20 years
Neste has been the main sponsor of the Finnish World Rally Championship event in Jyväskylä, Finland, since 1994. The rally annually generates a financial benefit of millions of euros for the Jyväskylä region.
Supporting innovation is close to us
Research and development activities play an important role in our businesses, which is why they are also seen as worthy of sponsorship support. We are proud sponsors of the world's biggest technology award, the Millennium Technology Prize, among others. The award is well suited to our mind-set, as it is awarded once every two years to an innovation that improves people's quality of life and supports sustainable development.
To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Neste, we donated 50,000 euros to the Cancer Society of Finland to support cancer researchers to realize their dreams and to support the development of Finnish excellence.
Vitality for local communities!
The vitality of communities in places where we operate is important to us. We take part in maintaining the vitality of the local communities, e.g., by sponsoring sports and culture at locations where we operate. Every year, we donate tens of thousands of euros to volunteer work initiatives among children and young people.
