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.

We need forerunners and courageous countries to lead the way in sustainable growth of aviation. I want to congratulate Sweden - it has set the bar very high on what comes to aviation emission reduction by using renewable jet fuel.
While we continue discussing various future alternatives for reducing transport-related emissions, high-quality renewable fuels such as Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ continue to steadily reduce transportation-related emissions even as we speak.
Neste shares the Finnish Government’s view that we need a large amount of sustainably produced biofuels in order to reduce climate emissions fast and sufficiently enough in the next decade
The current year largely determines whether the increase of CO2 emissions from aviation can be halted by 2020. Any increase in air traffic must be carbon-neutral after that also, which means that we need to find long-term solutions.
Our low-emission solutions are our greatest contribution to the global efforts to combat climate change. In 2017, our renewable products helped our customers to reduce global greenhouse gas emissions by a total of 8.3 million metric tons, and we aim at even higher reductions.
Our ranking shows that Neste has continued to develop its sustainability in the right direction and that our employees are very passionate about helping to create a healthier planet for our children.

The user of a renewable diesel can expect a clear greenhouse gas emission reduction even when the comparison is made with locally available, high-quality conventional diesels.
They’ll start to see cleaner filters, fuel injectors that last longer, less wear on fuel pumps, and no microbial contamination. Their maintenance savings really have just begun.
We are happy that our good collaboration with Borealis continues and we are able to deliver continuous added value to our customer.
I have been lucky to spend my childhood in Finland, where I was able to enjoy the four seasons of the year. After becoming a father, protecting our planet and combating climate change has become a priority to me. I want to do everything in my power so that my child will grow up in a clean environment, like I did. This is a call to all my fans to do their share.
Our collaboration is set out to challenge people to make responsible choices every day by transforming their mindset. #DontChoke communicates that we shouldn’t choke in front of big challenges, whether they face us on the court, or off it. Instead, we have to be courageous and goal-oriented to make better, sustainable choices.
In 2017, Neste MY Renewable Diesel reduced global climate emissions by 8.3 million tonnes. This is equivalent to taking more than 3 million fossil-fuel cars off the roads or making Latvia car-free for over three years. We are very happy to be able to offer this high-quality product also in Riga.
This clearly indicates that the European Union takes climate change seriously, and it has ambition to increase the use of renewable energy in transport.
Our operations at Helsinki Airport are carbon dioxide neutral. Next we will aim to achieve the same in our airports in Lapland. Using Neste MY Renewable Diesel as our vehicle fuel is a key part of our climate program.
