Wärtsilä and sustainability
As a global leader in complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy markets, Wärtsilä has a key role in providing sustainable solutions for the shipping and energy sectors. We support our solutions globally during their entire lifecycle. This creates the basis for our sustainability work, which is supported by our commitment to responsible business conduct.
Our commitment to sustainability and responsible business is based on our mission, vision and strategy, which along with our sustainable development objectives create the framework for developing the company’s activities and products. Wärtsilä’s management system and other sustainability tools provide us the means to assess our performance and to improve our operations and products continuously.
Wärtsilä applies global guiding principles such as the Quality, Environmental, Health & Safety policy (QEHS policy) and the Code of Conduct, which together with the company’s values ensure a harmonised way of working towards sustainable development. The Corporate Manual includes, in addition to the ones mentioned above, other policies and directives, a description of the company’s operating procedures, responsibilities and the management system structure. Wärtsilä’s governance and risk management principles, as well as the main sustainability risks, are described in the Corporate Governance section.
