We have a continuous history and tradition for supporting academia,environmental and humanitarian organisations, research institutes, as well as culture and sporting events. This is a tradition we value. It is our way of showing that we care for the local communities in which we operate.

The Opera and Ballet award was established in 2009, and is awarded annually by the Tom Wilhelmsen Foundation.
The Wilhelmsen group has a cooperation agreement with the international humanitarian organisation Right To Play, which uses sport and play as an arena for development and peace.
We are proud supporters of a professorship in martime research together with the Norwegian Business School (BI). The agreement, established in 2006, will receive 4.5 million NOK in funding from 2016-2019.
