Neste has not yet committed to phase out fossil fuels, but it produces, markets and sells renewable diesel and SAF. The company has developed a robust transition plan supported by climate scenario analysis, financial commitments and ambitious targets. Neste does not report future CapEx investment data, low-carbon research and development (R&D) expenditure or expected low-carbon revenue data, which are all important indicators for assessing the company’s transition plans. Neste’s scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions have been decreasing between 2018 and 2022, but not at the rate required to align with its 1.5°C pathway.
