Porvoo is the First City in Finland to Start Using Neste MY Renewable Diesel in all its Diesel-fuelled Vehicles

The city of Porvoo is revamping its fuel choices and decreasing its emissions by switching to Neste MY Renewable Diesel.

“We want to lead the way in carbon-neutral living. The use of Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a significant step towards a low-emission Porvoo. Neste MY will replace more than 100,000 liters of fossil fuel every year in Porvoo, generating 240,000 kg fewer carbon dioxide emissions. This will reduce the annual carbon footprint of every person living in Porvoo by approximately 5 kg,” says Fredrick von Schoultz, Deputy Mayor of Porvoo.

Cleaner urban future

Porvoo is following the footsteps of other cities, that have decided to curve the path towards cleaner urban future.

“Neste MY Renewable Diesel is an excellent solution for reducing greenhouse gas emissions in an urban environment. We are proud to see that Porvoo, the hometown of one of our refineries, is the first city in Finland to start using this premium-quality product to reduce the emissions of all of their diesel-fueled vehicles. In California, our products are already used in Sacramento and San Diego,” says Sam Holmberg, Vice President responsible for Neste’s Marketing and Services business area in Finland.
