Neo’s Environment & Sustainability Mission

Neo has been a trailblazer in the industry for several years, championing environmentally responsible operations and producing products that facilitate the use of sustainable technologies. The company has continued to embark on strategic initiatives and form collaborations to strengthen its position in the sustainability movement.

For example:

  • We are a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact. 

  •  We are active members of the Responsible Minerals Initiative.

  • We are a member of the Rare Earth Industry Association. 

  • We are part of the Canadian Critical Minerals & Materials Alliance.

  •  We established a US-to-EU rare earth supply chain that makes use of by-product economics and reduced upstream waste.

  • We relocated a major operating facility in China to reduce the concentration of heavy industry in a high-stress water region and reduce potential risk to groundwater sources. 

  • We participate in and share data and industry insights for public policymaking within the European Raw Materials Alliance, Wind Europe, and the Tantalum and Niobium International Study Center. 

  •  We invest in air, water, and waste emissions control technologies at manufacturing sites that help us meet and often exceed local regulatory guidelines.
