      "Risk of adverse environmental impact from procurement of raw materials for refining The main raw materials used in Neste’s refineries include animal fats, used cooking oils and wastes, and residues from vegetable oil processing, as well as some vegetable oils and crude oils. In recent past years, the use of palm oil has created a reputational risk as the sustainability of palm oil sourcing has given rise to public discussion and concerns from NGOs and customers, for example. Neste is committed to ensuring sustainable palm oil sourcing and has implemented several measures to improve transparency in its supply chain, as described above in Climate and Environmental matters. Our target for the share of crude palm oil and refined palm oil grades is to reach zero by the end of 2023, and the share of novel vegetable oils and other new low-ILUC feedstock is expected to grow post 2023."
