Environmental Protection

We are striving to achieve the most efficient, safe and environmentally-friendly products for use on board ships. Aware of how important it is to take care of the environment, we appreciate that the world’s resources are more precious than ever.

Shipping is recognized as the most sustainable mode of long distance transport of goods and materials, yet shipping too impacts environment. Wilhelmsen has a long-term commitment to continuously improve our operations to reduce our impact on the environment. Examples of sustainability can be seen in our cylinder exchange program, refrigerant reclaim solution and cartridge operated fire extinguisher and refilling program to mention a few.

In addition, by offering environmentally sound products and solutions to the merchant fleet, we also contribute to making the industry greener. Stricter national regulations reflect this change of attitude, and it is our goal to be in forefront of the market by meeting the new legislations even before they apply.
