Risks and opportunities


Neste receives a trend score of =. If the company were reassessed in the future, its score would likely stay the same. The company’s scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions intensity is not estimated to decrease at the rate required by its 1.5°C pathway if the trend seen between 2014 and 2019 continues.

However, Neste has dedicated high levels of CapEx to low-carbon projects and has a clear plan to expand its low-carbon product offering to further sectors. Its investments in less mature technologies such as electrolysis of green hydrogen and carbon capture, utilisation and storage could enable further emissions reductions. Additionally, the company’s investments in increasing its renewable product capacity will enable a greater relative share of low-carbon products in its fuel mix in the future and may decrease its scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions intensity.
