Neste’s palm oil and PFAD supply chain data for year 2018 published

April 7, 2019 |

In Finland, Neste has updated its palm oil and palm fatty acid distillate (PFAD) supply chain data for year 2018 on its traceability dashboard. The dashboard supplements Neste’s sustainability reporting by providing detailed information about the company’s palm oil usage as well as its palm oil supply chain in 2018.

The dashboard can be found at

The site includes an interactive palm oil supply chain map, providing information about the supplying palm oil mills and estates, their locations, as well as their certifications, for example.

99% of PFAD supply chain mapped to palm oil mills, 44% all the way to plantations.

All Neste-sourced renewable raw materials are traceable to the point of origin as the law requires of biofuels producers (e.g. EU RED in Europe). In 2017, Neste committed to go beyond this requirement by mapping the company’s PFAD supply chain to oil palm plantations by 2020.

In collaboration with palm oil suppliers and sustainability specialists from the Consortium of Resource Experts (CORE), Neste has now mapped 99% of their PFAD supply chain to the palm oil mills supplying palm oil to refineries where PFAD is extracted as a processing residue from edible oil to meet the food industry’s quality standards.

Furthermore, 44% of Neste’s PFAD supply chain has been mapped all the way to oil palm plantations based on publicly available data (e.g. on RSPO, ISCC, ISPO certifications) and supplier reporting.
