Regulatory issues

The energy industry affects people's lives and the global environment and energy companies are subject to a variety of government policies and regulations. We at Neste believe that good policy decisions should be a result of a thorough dialogue among different stakeholders and we strive to be part of the process of shaping policies and regulations that impact on our business.  We do so by communicating our views to governmental decision-makers, participating in the work of our industry's trade associations and being in dialogue with civil society organizations.

Neste recognizes the concerns over climate change and increasing global demand on energy and we promote policies that seek environmentally sound solutions to meet the energy and climate challenges. We believe that high performing and sustainable biofuels as well as other bio-based products are among the important means to decarbonize transport and other industries. We advocate for predictable and long-term regulations that allow various technologies to evolve and compete on an equal basis.
