Our ranking shows that Neste has continued to develop its sustainability in the right direction and that our employees are very passionate about helping to create a healthier planet for our children”, says Peter Vanacker, President & CEO from Neste.

According to Corporate Knights, “Neste continues being the number one ranked energy company in the world due to its industry-leading exposure to clean revenues, top quintile resource productivity for energy, carbon, water, NOx and particulate matter combined with excellent innovation capacity, and gender diversity on the board.”

Besides being the best energy company on the list, Neste is nowadays known for its ongoing transformation from a traditional oil refiner into a global leader in renewable products. Neste is in the business of helping transport and cities, aviation, polymers and chemicals customers make their business more sustainable and will continue to lead the way for renewable products.

“While continuing to transform our own business, we are excited to provide tools for transformations in other sustainability-oriented companies wishing to reduce their crude oil dependency and climate emissions“, Vanacker explains.
