2021 Global 100: Neste ranked as the world’s 4th most sustainable company
Neste has placed 4th on the Corporate Knights’ Global 100 list of the world’s most sustainable companies. This marks the company’s 15th consecutive inclusion on the Global 100 list. Neste has been included on the list continuously for longer than any other energy company in the world.
The Global 100 list is an annual ranking of corporate sustainability performance compiled by an independent consultancy Corporate Knights. This year Corporate Knights analyzed 8,080 companies against global industry peers. The ranking is based on an assessment of up to 24 quantitative key performance indicators ranging from environmental performance indicators to resource management, employee management, financial management, clean revenue and supplier performance.
“We are pleased to be recognized as one of the most sustainable companies in the world,” said Peter Vanacker, president and CEO of Neste. “Many businesses are continuously improving their sustainability efforts and placing on the list gets more difficult every year. It is great to see more and more companies actively integrating sustainability at the core of their business. Our purpose of creating a healthier planet for our children is what drives us to aim higher every day. We believe that together with our partners, we can succeed in reducing the impacts of the climate crisis. We will also continue improving the sustainability of our own operations.”
According to Corporate Knights, “Neste continues in a top position thanks to its industry-leading sustainability focus, and especially due to its excellent performance in clean revenue and clean investment indicators.”
Neste’s transformation journey has taken the company from a local oil refining company to becoming a global leader in renewable and circular solutions. Neste creates solutions for combating climate change and accelerating the shift towards circular economy. The company helps customers in the transport sector and cities, aviation, as well as polymers and chemicals industries to make their business more sustainable.
