How we are shaping a sustainable future with our partners

In a world where sustainability is no longer an option but a necessity, we are proud to stand at the forefront of this transformation. As our Chief Customer Officer, Pia Synnerman, says, "2023 marked a year of unparalleled success, not just in financial terms but in aligning our ambitions with those of our customers."

As we embark on our decarbonization journey, we do so hand-in-hand with our partners. Our recent signings of significant multi-year contracts with a leading global construction and mining equipment manufacturer, as well as with one of the largest automotive distributors in the Americas, are testaments to this shared journey. These agreements, valued at approximately USD 1 billion and USD 200 million, respectively, not only extend predictability for both parties but also directly support our decarbonization initiatives.

Opportunities in transformation

Pia Synnerman emphasizes the importance of seizing opportunities in the face of industry transformation, especially in the car industry's shift to electrification. This is not just an industrial shift but a collaborative effort. "We need to partner up with our customers to help them make this transition," she says.

At Wallenius Wilhelmsen, we understand that our role extends beyond being a service provider. We are partners, advisors, and collaborators and are proud of it. Our engagement goes beyond transactions; it's about building lasting relationships that transcend traditional boundaries. Synnerman says, "Our approach has always been about putting ourselves in our customers' shoes, understanding their challenges, and evolving with them."

Our customers come first

Our commitment is evident in our actions. The introduction of biofuel contracts and our focus on sustainable solutions mirror the urgency of the climate crisis, and thankfully, "The interest in sustainable options (from our customers) has exceeded our expectations," says Synnerman.

This deep understanding of our customers’ needs enables us to provide reliable supply chains, insightful data management, and comprehensive solutions that align with our clients' sustainability goals.

Looking ahead, our ambition is clear: We want to be the leading force in shaping a sustainable, efficient, and collaborative industry. We evolve with our customers to reach net-zero emissions and remain at the forefront of innovation and reliability in our industry.

As Synnerman concludes, "Together, we are not just facing the future; we are actively shaping it."

Join us on our journey toward a more sustainable world. Together, we can make a change.
