Neste sets high standards for sustainability. Our broadened sustainability vision is an integral part of the new wave of Neste’s transformation: we take the lead to transform towards a carbon neutral and nature positive value chain, and set ourselves aspirational targets for biodiversity, human rights, and our supply chain & raw materials.
We are committed to transformation towards a carbon neutral value chain. We aim to reduce the emission intensity of sold products, and work with our suppliers and partners to decrease emissions across our value chain (Scope 3). We are well on track and continue to progress with our existing climate commitments to reduce our own emissions and reach carbon neutral production (Scope 1 & 2) by 2035, and to help our customers to reduce emissions by at least 20 million tons CO2 e annually by 2030.
Biodiversity is closely interlinked with the question on climate change. Our vision now is to drive a positive impact on biodiversity and achieve a nature positive value chain. We aim at creating net positive impacts for biodiversity from new activities from 2025 onwards.
So far, we have committed to combating deforestation in our supply chains, required the same from all our suppliers, and spearheaded transparency in our industry’s supply chain.
Our vision is to create a more equitable and inclusive value chain in which everyone works with dignity. Priorities include requiring and securing living wages as well as using our platforms to increase children’s access to education and reduce inequalities across the value chain.
As is the case with all our focus areas, human rights are best advanced through collaboration. As an example, we have signed two partnership promises with Unilever on collaboratively advancing living wages as well as supplier equity, diversity and inclusion.
Supply chain & raw materials
Our supply chains and raw materials are critically important for reaching our sustainability ambitions. Our vision is to drive a safe and healthy workplace, fair labor practices and increased commitment across the supply chain. We include human rights, biodiversity and climate targets as key criteria for suppliers.
We continue to require 100% of our suppliers to be committed to our supplier’s code of conduct and have a grievance process that we will continue to develop to ensure that it is best-in-class.
