Wärtsilä joins the Sustainable Shipping Initiative

Marine-industry provider Wärtsilä has joined the Sustainable Shipping Initiative (SSI), a programme initiated by Forum for the Future to bring together the industry’s leading organisations to show what can and must be done for shipping to contribute to, and benefit from, a sustainable future.

This global taskforce gives leading industry players, and their supply-chain stakeholders, a framework for assessing the extent of their sustainability challenges.

By understanding their role in a sustainable future, companies can gain a competitive advantage and support the development of good policy in the process.

SSI was founded earlier this year by Forum for the Future in collaboration with WWF, Maersk Line, BP Shipping, Lloyd’s Register, Gearbulk, and ABN Amro.
