Our impact on the climate

Climate change is a global challenge and responding calls for a number of parallel approaches. The reduction in greenhouse gasses achieved through the use of our Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ is our most significant contribution.

Reduction in emissions of renewable products compensates for the emissions from production

We are one of the biggest emitters of carbon dioxide in Finland, but at the same time, the reduction of emissions which results from our customers using our renewable diesel more than makes up for this. In 2014, for example, the direct greenhouse gas emissions resulting from our operations were 3.2 million tons and the reduction in emissions achieved during the year through renewable diesel produced by us amounted to 5.6 million tons.

Carbon footprint of products – close monitoring from end to end

We calculate the carbon footprint of our products over their entire lifecycle, from the production of the feedstocks they are refined from to their end-use. The use of our Neste MY Renewable Diesel has been found to result in up to 80% lower greenhouse gas emissions than fossil diesel.
