Neste joins the European Alliance for a Green Recovery

Neste Corporation, News, 14 April 2020

Neste has joined an alliance of cross-party political decision-makers, businesses, NGOs and other stakeholders in a call for a Green Recovery after the coronavirus (Covid-19) crisis in Europe. The alliance places the fight against climate change at the core of the economic strategy in contributing to the quick recovery of the economies and the societies in Europe. 

Investments should be aimed to accelerate the transition to a climate-neutral economy, the protection of biodiversity and the transformation of agri-food systems.

“The coronavirus pandemic is causing unforeseen consequences to people’s health and the economy. While it is important to tackle the coronavirus, we also need to look for ways to help rebuild the world after the crisis. When we plan our path to that world, we have an opportunity to build a sustainable and resilient economy and society. Now is the time to design that vision,” says Peter Vanacker, President and CEO of Neste.

“Cooperation is a key driver for transformation. We are honored to be part of the alliance, working together with 180 Members of the European Parliament, Ministers, companies and other stakeholders towards green recovery after this pandemic. Together we can create a stronger and more sustainable future,” Vanacker continues.
