The future of vacationing?

Neste, a global leader in renewable diesel and renewable jet fuel made from waste and residues and one of the world’s most sustainable companies, is introducing the sustainable ‘Zero Vacation’.

The Zero Vacation is a part of Neste’s Zero Island project that looks for different ways to reach zero emissions in Sweden. The vacations take place on the naturally beautiful island of Lidö, where people can enjoy their vacations swimming, staying in the beautiful zero cabin ‘Nolla’ and sampling delicious dishes from the specially designed, sustainable Zero Menu.

“Fossil-free future requires changes in our everyday lives, and in our mindset. As part of Zero Island project, we wanted to show people they can have a world-class vacation with as little emissions as possible and without flying to the other side of the world,” says Marketing Director Sirpa Tuomi from Neste. 

From accommodation to food, every aspect of the Zero Vacation is designed to produce as little emissions as possible. As mentioned, the guests will be staying in the acclaimed Zero Cabin, Nolla, an Airbnb favourite featured on Lonely Planet and Dezeen among others. The Robin Falck designed cabin is built from sustainable materials and comes with minimal environmental impact both in terms of emissions and the concrete impact on nature. Tapping into the staycation trend, the Zero Vacations are designed to let guests experience a simpler way of life and nature in its purest form.

This all ties in well with Sweden aiming to become fossil free by 2045. To examine how this target could be reached, Neste, the world’s largest producer of renewable diesel, is exploring solutions that help make Zero Island entirely fossil free in one year. So if you’re from that part of the world, perhaps that’s your summer holiday sorted? Watch the video below to see for yourself!
