    Creating sustainable value for stakeholders


Our commitment to sustainability is based on our purpose and strategy, which along with our values, principles, and sustainable development objectives create the framework for our product development and responsible business practices. Our sustainability strategy is based on three closely interrelated pillars: economic, environmental, and social performance. We aim to be a profitable company that contributes towards the well-being of society by being a forerunner in sustainable solutions while demonstrating high ethical standards.

Because of our strong emphasis on decarbonising the marine and energy markets, innovative and efficient solutions play a central role in our positive contribution towards sustainable societies. Wärtsilä businesses focus on developing and providing solutions and services that maximise the environmental and economic performance of vessels, power plants and entire systems. This is further enhanced by utilising lifecycle data, analytics and artificial intelligence.
