Neste Oil again included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index

Neste Oil has once again been accepted for inclusion in the Dow Jones
Sustainability World Index, for the fourth year in succession. DJSI World is the
world's most important sustainability index and features 318 companies. Only
those companies most committed to sustainable development are included.

Neste Oil is one of only eight Finnish companies included in the latest DJSI
World listing. Companies are required to demonstrate continuous improvement
every year with regards to sustainability for inclusion.

"We very much appreciate being included in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index.
Responsibility is one of our core values and an integral part of our business
and our strategy. Being included in the DJSI confirms that we're on the right
track and also encourages us to continue our work in developing cleaner,
lower-emission traffic fuels," says Neste Oil's President & CEO, Matti Lievonen.

Neste Oil has been awarded 'Best in Class' recognition for its social
accountability by the Norwegian banking group, Storebrand, featured in the
Ethibel Pioneer Investment Register, and included four times in Innovest's
Global 100 list of the world's most sustainable corporations. Forest Footprint
Disclosure (FFD) has ranked Neste Oil as the best performer in the oil & gas
sector.
