Neste U.S., Inc., Houston, Texas, reduced more than 7 million metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions thanks to its 1 billionth gallon of Neste MY Renewable Diesel sold in North America. This is the equivalent to removing 1.6 million passenger vehicles from the road for one year.
"In light of Earth Day, there's never been a better time to take a closer look at the steps we're taking to ensure we're leaving our planet in a healthier state for future generations," says Jeremy Baines, vice president of sales. "Companies looking for ways to make a positive impact on the environment can start with simply lowering traffic emissions, which can also lower maintenance costs and improve their bottom line."
Neste MY Renewable Diesel is a drop-in, low-carbon diesel produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials, such as waste animal and fish fat, vegetable oils and used cooking oil, for commercial fleets. It is said to emit up to 80% less carbon when compared to petroleum diesel.
