Sweden's top filling station operator OKQ8 on Wednesday gave up its
plans to sell biodiesel refined by Finland's Neste Oil.

OKQ8, owned by Swedish cooperative OK and Kuwait Petroleum, had been
under pressure from Greenpeace.

Neste uses Malaysian palm oil as a raw material of its biodiesel.
According to Greenpeace, Malaysian tropical forest is cleared to make
way for palm tree plantations.
