What were our targets? Achievements in 2014 What next?
Significantly increase the use of waste and residue feedstock
  • Waste and residue accounted for 62.0% (52.6%) of our renewable inputs in 2014.
  • We added used cooking oil to our feedstock base.
  • Our target is to reach the capability to use exclusively waste and residue in the production of renewable diesel by 2017.
Continue progressing towards our energy saving target (660 GWh by 2016)
  • In 2014, we achieved 91% (80%) of the target set for 2016.
  • Continue operations that will help us to achieve our energy saving target.
Improve energy efficiency through investments and enhanced refinery operations
  • Measures executed in 2014 result in an annual energy saving of about 76 GWh.
  • Continue improving energy efficiency by investments and developing refinery operating.
Reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our operations in a cost-effective manner
  • We recovered 131,000
    (156,500) tons of CO2 at the Porvoo refinery.
  • We bought the first batches of crude palm oil that had been produced at a mill equipped with methane recovery.
  • We made an investment decision concerning the installation of a CO2 recovery and liquefaction plant at the Singapore refinery.
  • We continue identifying opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in our own operations.
Monitor changes in environmental legislation and permitting practices, and assess their potential impact
  • We started the evaluation of our current operations in relation to the new Best Available Technology (BAT) requirements.
  • Based on the review of the current situation, we will begin preparations for possible actions.
Comply with stricter environmental permit requirements
  • We succeeded to operate within the terms of our environmental permits, except for separate incidents with minor impact.
  • Continue operating within the terms of our environmental permits, and modify operations where needed to comply with new regulations.
