Neste Announces Sustainable Menu For Zero Island

On May 15, 2019, Neste, a Biobased and Renewable Products Advocacy Group (BRAG®) member, announced the introduction of a sustainable menu to be served on Zero Island. A Neste initiative to find sustainable solutions for building a fossil-free future for an island, Zero Island is located in the Swedish archipelago. The newly developed menu, also known as the Zero Menu, has been developed with renowned chef Jonas Svensson, taking into consideration not only what is served on the plate, but also how it is produced and transported. The goal of the Zero Menu is to minimize waste, making it easier for people to make sustainable choices. Food production is responsible for a large percentage of all greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions due to livestock, transportation, packaging, storing, processing, and energy used to cook the food. Hence, the need for sustainable food options as the population grows. The Zero Menu was created to address these needs. It is designed to cause minimal amounts of fossil emissions from the field to the table. All ingredients on the menu are sustainably and locally produced, transported with lower fossil fuel emissions, and cooked with the minimum amount of energy without food waste.
