The challenge of social exclusion is huge and tackling it requires a collaborative effort – this is why we are inviting companies to participate. Every young person, no matter where or how they live, should feel that they are an important part of our society. One of the objectives of the Zero Exclusion campaign is to give an unconventional and inspiring voice to the participating young artists.
Many companies appear to consider sustainability a central part of their business. Despite this, less than half (38%) of the respondents say that their company is currently engaged in sustainability-related cooperation. But concrete actions which improve sustainable business often require cooperation. We at Neste want to encourage companies to embrace a more sustainable future, in Finland as well as globally.
The opening of our new office in Australia marks another important step in Neste’s global growth strategy. Our aim is to become a global leader in renewable and circular solutions. By opening a local office, we are better placed to cooperate closely with our partners to secure the supply of waste and residue raw materials. This in turn enables us to serve the growing global demand for low-carbon solutions in transport and cities, aviation, polymers and chemicals.
Collaboration also brings Neste closer to having the necessary partnerships and infrastructure to meet our Plastics Pledge target. Our aim is to process annually more than one million tons of plastic waste from 2030 onwards.
In addition to offering renewable and circular solutions to our customers, we are also committed to reducing the carbon footprint of our own production. Investments in renewable energy are one part of this.
Renewable and circular polymers and chemicals can play a major role in addressing climate change and the problem of global plastic waste alike. Germany is home to some of the world’s most successful plastics and chemicals companies and Düsseldorf centrally located in terms of Central European chemical industry. Our ambition is to join forces with frontrunners in order to create a healthier planet for our children.

Together with Air BP we are able to support air transport in Sweden in their efforts, and this collaboration gives both of us valuable insight into developing similar supply chains to decarbonize aviation in other markets.
Climate change is the biggest challenge of our times, and the clock is ticking. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC, we may have less than 12 years to tackle climate change. It is a challenge to which there are no easy answers. To succeed, all the possible alternatives need to be utilized. We must implement both small and large solutions as soon as possible. If we don’t act now, soon it will be too late
In the climate debate and especially in politics, it is common to force people to take sides against one another, which makes the problem almost impossible to solve. With climate change the truth is that for the first time we are all in the same boat and lost without a solution. The next government needs to achieve results and clear reductions. Not just plans, or good intentions, but results
We firmly believe that our innovative joint projects will improve the competitiveness of the Finnish chemical industry. Finnish chemical industry know-how is already world-class and I believe that together with Åbo Akademi University we get to make the most out of our strengths in a new and inspirational way.
Demand for cleaner fuels is on the rise globally, and California is a leader in the movement toward an emissions-free future. Neste MY Renewable Diesel helps meet environmental needs without compromising performance.
