Neste has been selected in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices (DJSI) for the 16th consecutive year. Neste is included in both DJSI World and DJSI Europe listings, among the leading sustainable companies in the world.
Neste’s performance received the industry’s best scores in materiality, environmental and social reporting, human rights, and human capital development, contributing to the company’s inclusion among the top performers.
”Neste is strongly driven by its ambitious sustainability vision and climate commitments. This year’s recognition of being again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices verifies that we have made the right progress to become a global leader in renewable and circular solutions. Our people have fully taken charge of making this change happen, and we are very proud of this recognition, which is also highly valued by our stakeholders,” says Minna Aila, Senior Vice President, Sustainability and Corporate Affairs, at Neste.
The companies eligible for S&P Dow Jones Indices are selected for inclusion based on their comprehensive assessment in the S&P Global Corporate Sustainability Assessment (CSA). Since 1999, the CSA in collaboration with Dow Jones Indices (now S&P Dow Jones Indices) has been one of the most important and leading global sustainability benchmarks. The assessment of companies this year is based on their performance in 2021. Only leading companies in each industry are included in the indices each year.
Neste creates solutions for combating climate change and accelerating a shift to a circular economy. We refine waste, residues, and innovative raw materials into renewable fuels and sustainable feedstock for plastics and other materials. We are the world’s leading producer of sustainable aviation fuel and renewable diesel and developing chemical recycling to combat the plastic waste challenge. We aim at helping customers to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions with our renewable and circular solutions by at least 20 million tons annually by 2030. Our ambition is to make the Porvoo oil refinery in Finland the most sustainable refinery in Europe by 2030. We are introducing renewable and recycled raw materials such as liquefied waste plastic as refinery raw materials. We have committed to reaching carbon-neutral production by 2035, and we will reduce the carbon emission intensity of sold products by 50% by 2040. We also have set high standards for biodiversity, human rights, and supply chain. We have consistently been included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Indices and the Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable companies. In 2021, Neste’s revenue stood at EUR 15.1 billion.
