Neste Oil included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index for the fifth time in

Neste Oil has again been recognized for its commitment to sustainability by
being selected for inclusion in the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index (DJSI
World) for the fifth year in succession. Neste Oil is one of a total of 342
companies from 30 countries to be selected. Companies included in DJSI World are
expected to show a high level of commitment to financial, social, and
environment responsibility, as well as continuous improvement. Companies are
selected for inclusion in the DJSI indexes on the basis of assessments made by
the Swiss-based SAM Group.

"We are proud that Neste Oil has again been ranked as one of the world's most
sustainable companies," says Neste Oil's President & CEO, Matti Lievonen.
"Sustainability is a central part of our cleaner traffic strategy, and we are
committed to continually developing our performance in terms of sustainability.
Impartial third-party reviews such as that carried out for DJSI World give our
stakeholders a valuable indication of how we are performing and show that we are
focusing on the right things."

Neste Oil has long been a pioneer in developing lower-emission fuels and aims to
be an industry pioneer in sustainability. During 2010, for example, Neste Oil
focused on areas such as verifying the sustainability of its supply chain,
improving dialogue with its stakeholders, developing its security systems, and
assessing the indirect impact of its operations.

Neste Oil has been recognized for the work it has done in terms of
sustainability in a number of other reviews. In early 2011, the company was
named the world's 20th most sustainable company in The Global 100 list and the
best performer in the oil & gas sector by Forest Footprint Disclosure. Neste Oil
has also been included in the Ethibel Excellence Investment register.
