Petri Lehmus, Vice President R&D, Neste Corporation and Member of the Board, SusChem Finland, writes about climate change and the actions to fight it. It is important to fully utilize solutions that are available already today. In addition, we also need new solutions.

SusChem Finland’s vision is to promote carbon neutrality by circular economy and bioeconomy through chemical and biotech innovations. Petri Lehmus is a member of the board. On SusChem blog, Lehmus writes about the ways and pace of transforming the society from fossil to renewable and more circular. 

Resolving significant future challenges by boosting R&D work and innovation investments is a target to aim for. This is what Business Finland set as an aim when it challenged Finnish companies and selected three winners from a competition. Neste was one of them and the others were Fortum and Metsä Group for new fibre-based products with reduced carbon footprint.
