Neste and The Port Authority of New York & New Jersey collaborate to facilitate the use of sustainable transportation fuels
Neste, the leading renewable fuels producer, and the Port Authority of New York & New Jersey (PANYNJ), have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) on its 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. “One of the key elements of that commitment is working closely with partners who can help us enact an aggressive sustainability agenda. So we are excited to collaborate with Neste to identify ways to develop the regional market for cleaner liquid fuel, as we work towards our goal of reducing the agency’s emissions 80 percent by 2050.”
