1.6M Swedes given clean diesel option

Sweden…they do things differently there – and the world is always watching. I am talking climate, of course – what else?

This is a country on a mission to reduce carbon emissions from its transport sector by 70% by 2030. A country recognised as the EU’s leading innovator last year – and the year before. A place that does walk-the-talk on taking action on the biggest issues of the day.

And one of its largest fuel companies, OKQ8, struck a deal today that supports the nation’s environmental ambitions. Its tie-up with Neste means Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ – which slashes greenhouse gasses by up to 90% in comparison to fossil fuels, according to calculations that comply with the EU Renewable Energy Directive, will be available at 200 sales points in Sweden before the year is out. Doubling the amount currently available across the country.

On the move to roll out availability of a fuel made using renewable and sustainable raw materials, Andréa Haag, Director Sustainability & Network at OKQ8 said: “By the end of 2020 our 1.6 million members and private and professional customers can refuel with Neste MY Renewable Diesel at OKQ8 and OKQ8 network stations throughout Sweden.”
