Corporate strategy

Wärtsilä aims at profitable growth by providing advanced technologies and lifecycle solutions to its marine and energy market customers.

Increasing environmental awareness and changing energy needs are affecting the way that our customers operate. With our integrated offering of services and products, we are well positioned today to respond to the need for energy efficient, innovative, and flexible solutions. We will meet the increasing demand for gas-based technologies with our industry-leading multiple fuel products and LNG solutions. Our objective is to leverage our project management and engineering competences to achieve growth by offering our customers new and innovative solutions. Our digital transformation will provide increased customer value and optimised performance. Our growth ambitions are supported by our superior global service network.

With our production and supply chain management, we constantly seek new ways to maintain high quality and cost efficiency – often in co-operation with leading industrial partners in our key growth markets. Our market driven investments in R&D and our focus on digitalisation create a strong foundation for securing and strengthening our position at the forefront of market innovation. This innovative culture, together with our constant emphasis on safety, diversity, and high ethical standards, attract skilled and committed people and provides the basis for a high performing organisation. Our entrepreneurial drive, customer focus, and passion for doing right not only create new opportunities and environmentally sustainable solutions, but also bring value to all our stakeholders.


Wärtsilä's aim is to meet shareholder expectations and contribute toward the well-being of society. This requires efficient, profitable, and competitive company operations. Good economic performance establishes a platform for the other aspects of sustainability – environmental and social responsibility.

Wärtsilä's overriding promise is to supply technologies and services that offer high efficiency with low environmental load. Our objective is to continuously improve the environmental performance of our products and services taking into account the lifecycle perspective, as well as to maintain technological leadership through R&D and by utilising new technologies and collaborating with our customers and other stakeholder groups. In doing this, we help our customers and society at large to meet the goals of the tightening global environmental regulations and guidelines.

Wärtsilä acts as a good corporate citizen wherever we are active. Our business operations and relations with our stakeholders are governed by our Code of Conduct. Wärtsilä is a responsible employer, and we seek to offer our employees an interesting and exciting workplace where openness, respect, trust, equal opportunities, and scope for personal development prevail. A further aim is to offer a hazard-free working environment to our employees and contractors, and to minimise the health and safety risks associated with the use of our products and services. Supply chain management and development are integral elements of our operations.
