Sestakauskaite emphasized the importance of cooperation between different sectors in order to effectively exchange the impact on the climate.
The growing demand for renewable energy, the growing problems of climate change and geopolitics encourage the use of alternative energy and fuel sources. According to J. Sestakauskaitas, this is the aim of complying with the EU oil prices and slightly reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, and the benefit of cooperation between the participants of the value chain.
Together with partners in a completely different sector, from the furniture manufacturer to the delivery of goods, we reduce the carbon dioxide footprint by approximately 10 million tons every year. how much emissions can be equated to the reduction of 3 million passenger cars to a few. J. Sestakauskaite shares the experience of such cooperation helping to reveal benefits that organizations cannot realize by acting alone.
Neste’s partners include Ikea, the Finnish airline Finnair, and logistics mon DB Schenker and other companies. Therefore, according to J. Sestakauskaites, it is important to attract sustainable partnerships within the sector as well.
Porvoo is the first city in Finland to use 100% renewable energy produced by Neste MY diesel in all its diesel municipal vehicles. The solution replaces more than 100 thousand people every year. liter of fossil fuel and allows the city to reduce its carbon footprint, she says.
Vedia Lithuania, who has been in charge of the sustainable partnership in the Baltic states for less than a year, says that she sees a lot of potential in this region to join forces due to climate change.
One of the best examples of sustainable partnership in the Baltic states is cooperation with the fast food restaurant chain Hesburger. Used cooking oil collected from more than 300 restaurants of the io chain operating in Finland and the Baltic states is processed and used for the production of Neste MY Renewable Diesel. In a year, the partnership allows to save on average as much ESD emissions as 350 passenger cars emit.
J. Sestakauskaite revealed our plans to refine the oil, which can be used to create fuel and other products for various industries.
We already use oils and other fats in our production, but in the future we plan to further expand the range of waste into which we can produce high-quality products and use materials such as lignocellulose and municipal waste, plastic bags and renewable hydrogen. In order to use the potential of the material, we need partners who are open to innovation and who have the courage to change, – said J. Sestakauskaite at the conference.
