Sustainability

In 2008 Wilson Sons began its journey in the formal construction of the Sustainability agenda, since then there have been many projects, partners, challenges and provocations. We are guided by stakeholder indicators such as Bloomberg, GRI and Global Pact and the expertise of partners such as FBDS and Catavento. In 2018, certain of the relevance of social and environmental themes to its way of doing business, Wilson Sons defined an acting model that aims to generate and protect value by connecting sustainability management with its strategic objectives. Thus, the prospect of reducing impacts and creating business opportunities increasingly beneficial to society and the environment becomes concrete and legitimate.

Environmental responsibility

We are experiencing a period of great environmental pressures and rapid technological change. For this new world to come, our customers are looking for companies they can trust to deliver solidity, now and in the future. At Wilson Sons our commitment to the environment creates value, we believe that delivering bold and efficient solutions contributes to the decarbonisation of our customers value chain.

Convinced of our environmental responsibility to contribute to the transition the world seeks, we quantify and publish our greenhouse gas emissions annually, and adopt cleaner processes and technologies. Reduction of diesel consumption with hybrid propulsion (diesel-electric) maritime support vessels, more efficient fuel consumption by optimizing tug routes from a specialized operations center, the new tugs use motors with electronic management system which reduces the emission of polluting gases. In the container terminal segment, we move cargoes with electric cranes in the yard and dock, equipped with dynamic braking motors that enable energy regeneration during use.

Social Responsability

Wilson Sons focuses its actions on the local development where it is inserted, strengthening the generation and preservation of business value by promoting ethical, transparent and responsible action, in accordance with legal prerogatives, respecting human rights, the environment and valuing our employees.

The company's social action is in line with the principles established in the UN Universal.
