Neste reaches Leadership level in CDP Climate Change assessment

Neste Corporation, Press Release, 23 January 2020 at 10 a.m. (EET)

Neste has achieved Leadership level and A- rating for its climate action by the non-profit Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). The company has reached the Leadership level (A or A-) since the current assessment system was introduced in 2016. 

In the result released by CDP on 20 January 2020, Neste is among the selected few Nordic companies in the climate leadership level. The ‘A-’ rating is based on Neste's climate-related sustainability performance in 2018. CDP Climate Change focuses on assessing corporate measures to combat climate risks and how companies take advantage of the business opportunities offered by low-emission products and services. 

“We are pleased with our ranking in CDP's Climate Change program. Neste focuses on helping customers in the transport sector and cities, aviation, as well as polymers and chemicals industries to make their business more sustainable. It is encouraging to see that our long-term sustainability efforts in combating climate change and solid performance across different criteria are being recognized in rankings such as these”, says Peter Vanacker, President and CEO at Neste.

Neste has disclosed its climate change prevention measures for the past 13 years in CDP. For this ranking, CDP collected data from thousands of companies about their environmental impacts, risks and opportunities, for independent assessment against its scoring methodology. The purpose of the assessment is to recognize the role of enterprises in meeting the goals of international climate agreements.
