Sustainability at Neste

Neste’s transformation journey has taken us from being a local oil refiner to a global leader in renewable and circular solutions. Setting high standards for sustainability enables our growth and purpose: Creating a healthier planet for our children. It continues to be the cornerstone of our strategy.

We provide our customers and partners with low-emission solutions to the world's most pressing sustainability challenges. Our renewable and circular solutions are our contribution to keeping societies running more sustainably and helping to reduce the dependency on virgin fossil raw materials. As the world’s leading producer of sustainable aviation fuel, renewable diesel and renewable feedstock solutions for various polymers and chemicals industry uses, our business is built upon sustainability. We refine waste, residues and other innovative raw materials into renewable fuels and more sustainable feedstocks for plastics and other materials.

In 2022, our customers were able to reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions globally by 11.1 million tons by replacing fossil products with Neste’s renewable and circular solutions.

We set high standards for sustainability. Our work is guided by the Neste sustainability vision in which we have set ourselves aspirational targets for climate, biodiversity, human rights, as well as our supply chain and raw materials – issues that are all interlinked. Together with our partners we are aiming at a carbon neutral and nature positive value chain by 2040.

Our sustainability performance is assessed by a number of third parties. For example, Neste has been consistently included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) and the Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable companies. We have also been ranked a top performer in CDP’s climate and forest ratings.
