Presentation Abstract

Partnerships in Sustainability - the Neste story

Climate change is a global crisis. How we tackle climate change in this decade will determine the remaining leeway for the upcoming ones. It is everyone’s business to take action now.

The petrochemical industry could account for roughly half of global oil demand growth until 2040. Oil demand for petrochemicals can be reduced through increasing plastic waste recycling and use or renewable raw materials to produce polymers and chemicals. Neste is a company which makes fighting climate change possible today, helping customers to make their business more sustainable.  Over the past 15 years, Neste has transformed itself from a regional oil refinery towards a global leader in renewable solutions, and one of the most sustainable companies in the world. In this speech, Neste will shed a light on this transformation and how value chain collaboration already results in significant reduction of GHG emissions today.
