Sustainability is at the core of our strategy for cleaner traffic. Being a global pioneer in renewable products, both in traffic and other areas, is another of our strategic goals.
Sustainability is one of our four values that form a basis for everything we do.
Cleaner traffic strategy – combating climate change
Sustainability is not only our way of operating, it is part of our business. We have invested approximately EUR 1.5 billion in the production of renewable fuels, as they offer us business growth and are an efficient way of combating climate change. Using our Neste Renewable Diesel makes it possible to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 40–90% over its lifecycle compared to petroleum diesel.
In 2014, 12% of our net sales was generated by the renewable fuels business.
In addition to traffic, we offer cleaner solutions to other industries, such as the chemical industry. The NEXBTL technology can be used to produce renewable solvents for use in the production of paints and bioplastics, for example.
