Neste is an expert in state-of-the-art renewable solutions that help decarbonise the world. We want to take our Supplier Due Diligence System into the digital era – the new system should be less manual, more transparent and more engaging. We want to ensure that environmental, social and governance issues are continuously developed in our supply chain. Join our upcoming sustainability hackathon in Helsinki and Singapore and take part in building a more sustainable future.
Registration of teams open until 11th May.
After registration you will get more detailed information on the challenge via email. Then we need your finalized ideas to be submitted by 15th May latest 23:59 EET (UTC/GMT +3). Based on finalized ideasThe finalists Waiting to see your brilliant and innovative ideas!
First and foremost, we are looking for revolutionary out-of-the-box ideas that shape our industry. Thus, we do not want to limit your creativity too much. However, to set the scene, there are four key aspects for you to consider that we think could make our day-to-day work easier:
1. Supplier process and internal tracking
Neste has over a hundred raw material suppliers worldwide, with new ones constantly on-boarding. How could different teams at Neste better jointly track and monitor the performance of their suppliers, both operations and sustainability-wise?
2. Engagement and continuous improvement
Sustainability is a journey that Neste takes together with its suppliers. How could suppliers easily submit information and evidence of progress related to their sustainability commitments, systems, and working practices, and how could Neste help them on their sustainability journey?
3. New ways to visualize sustainability performance
There are many actors, such as policymakers, NGOs and consumers, who require transparency in sustainability. How could the gathered performance data be presented visually in an understandable format?
4. Open ideas
How could Neste use the sustainability related data it gathers? What new business or other uses could the information have? How could their sustainability due diligence system work as a platform for other actors related to the industry?
