It is almost three decades since the United Nations met at the Rio Earth Summit, and decided to reduce green house gas emissions as a mechanism to positively impact climate change. And how are we doing? Well, the truth is we have gone backwards.
Thankfully since the 2016 signing of the Paris Agreement, and more recent adoption of net zero goals by a number of governments, we are starting to see some progress. We expect the next step will be for all organisations, large and small, to be required to develop a net zero target, and a date for compliance. And that’s where we can help.
Neutral Fuels, and our parent company, The Neutral Group, have been helping organisations design and implement exactly these plans since 2007. We understand the difficulties, and the challenges, and we see our main task as helping to make it easier.
We love to encourage tomorrow’s generation to make a difference and here are some of the many projects that we are involved in to give back to the community:
Mentoring aspiring entrepreneurs
Our founder and chairman, Karl W Feilder, has taught at the prestigious Masdar Institute, is currently a catalyst mentor at Hult International Business School, and is also a judge on the annual million dollar Hult Prize. He has been coaching fellow entrepreneurs since 2001, is a frequent speaker at school STEM events, inspiring and training the next generation of leaders. He is a member of the worldwide Unreasonable Group, who are working tirelessly together in the belief that the world’s problems can be solved by entrepreneurs.
Our internship programme
Since 2008, The Neutral Group and Neutral Fuels have pioneered a successful internship program, nurturing and developing the skills of recent engineering graduates. Described as “knowledge rich”and “a life changing experience,” our internship program gives talented graduates real life work experience and fosters highly applicable skills development.

Powering school buses
We are proud to work with Secondary Technical Schools (STS) to power their school buses on our net zero biofuel to significantly reduce their carbon footprint and their students exposure to tailpipe emissions.
The Bee Bus
The world’s most popular pollinator of food crops is in danger and we cannot produce enough honey to keep up with demands. We are delighted to power The Bee Bus on its critical mission with 100% pure net zero biofuel as it buzzes around UAE schools stimulating the next generation’s understanding of the importance of bees.
Not only do we believe in reducing pollution to save the planet, but we also believe in driving safely. Our partners at Roadsafety UAE do a fantastic job educating and communicating to the public how to drive effectively to avoid collisions and injury. And it is no surprise that when we drive more safely, we also use less fuel.
