Neste has completed its organizational restructuring, a process that was initially announced on November 1, 2023. The company unveiled its decision to merge its three renewable business units into a single Renewable Products business unit, while also restructuring its functions to better align with business-driven operational methodologies. This move towards a more streamlined organizational structure and operational model is aimed at enhancing Neste's ability to execute its growth strategy, thereby improving cost-efficiency and fortifying its long-term competitiveness.

The expected outcome of these organizational changes was a projected reduction of approximately 400 job positions globally. Following extensive consultations regarding the impending changes, Neste has confirmed a reduction of approximately 320 job positions in Finland. Furthermore, an estimated 70 job roles globally are anticipated to be affected. In response to these changes, Neste has undertaken various supportive measures to aid its employees in navigating through this transitional period.

It is forecasted that the restructuring efforts will yield total annual cost savings of approximately €50 million. During its Capital Markets Day in June 2023, Neste outlined its ambitious target to generate over MEUR 350 in value through its Neste Excellence program by the end of 2026, with the year 2022 serving as the new base year.
