The world’s leading producer of renewable fuels, Neste is going Google by introducing Google Drive for Work services to its personnel globally. Being at the forefront of technology development Neste is taking the next step in creating an environment for innovation and enabling new ways of working. At the same time Google is moving forward with Neste’s innovative NEXBTL renewable diesel which is being used on selected Google’s shuttle buses (gBuses) in Silicon Valley, California.
“Our partnership with Google enables us to use the latest technology to innovate and succeed in the digital transformation impacting all industries. Together with Google we want to make most of the opportunity ahead of us,” says Tommi Tuovila, CIO of Neste Corporation.
Based on an extensive evaluation carried out within the last year, Neste decided to implement Google for Work services enabling a true shift in the ways of working.

Neste and Google have also decided to cooperate in the field of cleaner traffic.
“Both Neste and Google share the notion of focusing on things that are not just relevant now but also in the future. The promise of technology can make our world much better for us and our children. A good example of innovation for our future is Neste’s NEXBTL renewable diesel fuel that Google has decided to use on selected gBus fleets,” says Jesper Stormholt from Google.
“We are happy that we can help Google reduce their carbon footprint with our low-carbon NEXBTL renewable diesel. Produced from 100% renewable and sustainable raw materials and being suitable for all diesel vehicles, NEXBTL is an ideal fuel for California where the state has ambitious program to reduce greenhouse gases. Thanks to its significantly lower tailpipe emissions, NEXBTL diesel is also an excellent solution to improve urban air quality,” says Kaisa Hietala, Neste’s Executive Vice President, Renewable Products.
