Trade & Customer

Doing the right things the right way is the foundation of our governing elements and culture. We ensure our sustainability expectations are clear for our customers, partners and suppliers and that products and services are compliant with our standards.


Our ambition is to be a responsible, trusted, and compliant value chain partner. We are guided by our policies on ethics and anticorruption. Efforts are focused on strengthening responsible business culture. 

The industry we are operating in is exposed to several risks. To mitigate risks and prevent and mitigate unethical business practises, we have a governance system in place including policies, audits, risk assessments, and reporting. We also have an external and internal whistleblowing channel and perform continuous awareness training to ensure our employees understand our expectations.

We also find it valuable to participate in networks with other companies in our industry and other business partners, for example the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN), as we believe in collaborating to move the industry and the world in the right direction and contribute to develop regulatory requirements.

Cyber security and data protection

Our objective is to minimise cyber security risk and data protection risk and to secure employees’ active contribution to a risk prevention culture. The key focus areas are to continuously improve our cyber security maturity, strengthen operational measures, and increase employee competence in cyber security and data protection risk prevention behaviour.

Supply chain management

We are committed to doing business with responsible suppliers. We need to ensure our sustainability expectations are clear to suppliers and that products and services are compliant with our standards.

Wilhelmsen Ship Management works with suppliers who will comply with the International Marine Purchasing Association (IMPA) ACT Supplier Code of Conduct (SCoC). The SCoC seeks to improve the economic, social, and environmental sustainability of international shipping and marine industries and is aligned with the United Nations Guiding Principles on business and human rights.
