Neste and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding on a joint sustainable fuel initiative.
The partners will be working together to facilitate the use of sustainable transportation fuels at Port Authority facilities and in its fleet vehicles and equipment, including renewable aviation fuel, renewable diesel, renewable propane and other sustainable fuel products.
“As the first U.S. transportation agency to embrace the Paris Climate Agreement, the Port Authority is committed to reducing its carbon footprint by supporting the use of sustainable fuels across our facilities - especially in operations where electrification is not yet viable,” said Christine Weydig, director of the Port Authority’s Office of Environmental and Energy Programs.
“We are truly happy to partner with Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, a key transportation facilitator in the area,” said Neste’s President and CEO Peter Vanacker.
“Decarbonizing transportation requires partnering, sharing the same goal, and working side by side. We are extremely excited to share our expertise in low -carbon renewable fuels to find solutions for the Port Authority of New York &New Jersey to reach their greenhouse gas emission reduction targets,” concluded Vanacker.
