Neste provides humanitarian support

Neste Corporation, News, 5.3.2022

At Neste, we are appalled and concerned about the war in Ukraine, which is a clear violation of international law and principles of human rights. We, along with so many businesses and individuals, condemn the invasion by Russia.

We have witnessed strong support for Ukraine among our employees, our customers and the international community. The war has caused and continues to cause human suffering. We are providing humanitarian support by donating to two organizations, The Red Cross and UNICEF, and we continue to look for ways in which we can help. 

We also continue to monitor the development of sanctions and restrictions. We have taken decisive action in redirecting our sourcing and sales, and we aim to secure the supply of our products in all situations.

Our thoughts are with the Ukrainian people and all those who are affected.
