Neste Oil is one of the corporate sector contributors to the Borneo Child Aid Society and is committed to the operations of the society through a long-term contribution agreement. As a result of Neste Oil's support, 265 Malaysian children have the opportunity to obtain elementary school education every year. With the relief work, Neste Oil wants to support development in areas that are essential to Neste Oil's operations and where societal resources are not enough to ensure wellbeing for all of the residents of the local community.

The Borneo Child Aid Society is a Malaysia-based non-profit civic organization that provides education for children who live on plantations or in remote areas. As a result of the operations of the Borneo Child Aid Society, more than 9,000 poor children can go to school. The schools supported by the organization are located on the island of Borneo in Malaysia.
