Climate and resource efficiency

How do we manage our environmental footprint?

We operate within strict environmental permit limits, and have significantly reduced the airborne and other environmental emissions related to our operations. By using resources efficiently, we help reduce the overall usage of natural resources and improve our productivity, cut our costs, and enhance our competiveness.

Climate and environmental protection play a major role in Neste Oil’s operations. Neste Oil has a long tradition of work in this area and has systematically monitored the environmental impact of its operations since the end of the 1960s and continuously prioritized reducing the impact that its operations have on the environment.

Efficient resource usage for Neste Oil is primarily related to the responsible and optimized use of energy and natural resources, such as feedstocks and water. Well-managed practices and procedures can reduce or avoid waste being generated. By managing its resource usage efficiently, Neste Oil helps protect the world’s natural resources and improve its productivity, reduce its costs, and enhance its competitiveness.
