Craig Jasienski joins World Shipping Council Board of Directors
The World Shipping Council represents approximately 90 percent of global liner capacity through its 19 members and works with governments and policy makers on solutions for some of the world’s most challenging transportation problems. Now Wallenius Wilhelmsen’s CEO Craig Jasienski has taken a seat among the Board of Directors.
We are delighted to announce that our CEO Craig Jasienski has joined the Board of Directors at the World Shipping Council (WSC).
The WSC plays an active role in the development of programmes to improve maritime security and promotes sound environmental stewardship through new international emissions standards.
We are continuously working towards zero-emission deep sea shipping, but this is not something any of us can do alone – partnerships are crucial to the industry’s progress in this area.
“Sustainability is no longer about how we do business; it is the future of our business,” explains Jasienski. “We are continuously working towards zero-emission deep sea shipping, but this is not something any of us can do alone – partnerships are crucial to the industry’s progress in this area.
“That’s why I very much look forward to being part of the WSC’s Board of Directors. I will not only represent Wallenius Wilhelmsen but also look at the bigger picture for the whole industry and the organisation’s members. Together we are stronger and able to raise the key challenges facing the liner shipping industry today,” he adds.
As an association of liner shipping companies with offices in Brussels, Singapore and Washington, D.C., WSC’s members carry approximately 90 percent of international containerised trade and a substantial share of the world’s roll-on/roll-off cargoes. The Council’s goal is to provide a coordinated voice for the industry through its work with policymakers and other groups interested in international transportation issues.
