Carbon footprint

We calculate the carbon footprint of our products over their entire life cycle, from the production of the raw materials they are refined from to their end-use. The use of our Neste MY Renewable Diesel™, for example, helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 50–90% compared to fossil diesel.

Carbon neutral production by 2035

Neste’s purpose is to create a healthier planet for our children. We do this by offering renewable and circular solutions to our customers. What is more, we also need to commit to reducing the direct climate impact of our own activities. Therefore, we have set a concrete target to reach carbon neutral production by 2035. This is an enormous undertaking, one which will require new ways of thinking, innovation and plenty of cooperation.

All aspects of GHG emissions in Neste’s production will be analyzed. We have already identified more than 50 different measures and actions to decrease GHG emissions in production. For example, we will increase the use of renewable electricity at our production sites. As an example of this, we have already agreed to start using wind power in Finland.
