Running for Life

Fuel with passion, running for a cause to improve lives with cleaner energy. BW LPG launched the Running for Life campaign, organised as part of the Standard Chartered Marathon in Singapore. The Running for Life campaign's objectives are two-fold; to inspire a healthy and fit lifestyle among BW LPG employees and to also support the World LPG Association's Cooking for Life programme.

At BW LPG, we deliver clean energy for a sustainable world. As the world's leading owner and operator of LPG carriers with four decades of operating experience, we champion competitive, sustainable solutions to secure enduring value for our society and stakeholders. One admirable campaign that BW LPG supports is the World LPG Association’s (WLPGA) Cooking for Life campaign. The WLPGA promotes the use of LPG worldwide in order to foster a safer, cleaner, healthier and more prosperous world. It brings together over 250 private and public companies operating in more than 125 countries.

The Cooking for Life campaign facilitates the transition of one billion people from cooking with traditional fuels, as well as other dirty and dangerous fuels, to cleaner-burning LPG by 2030. As the leading carrier of LPG, we believe in this campaign and are proud to support this cause, with donations for every employee who completes a marathon organized by Standard Chartered Bank in Singapore. It is hoped that this will inspire a healthy lifestyle among BW LPG employees. From our inaugural participation in 2016, BW LPG has continued to send a team of employees every year ever since.

In 2018, we are proud to increase our association with WLPGA, with BW LPG CEO Martin Ackermann accepting a position on its Board. The Board meets three times a year and has an overall governance role for the Association as defined under French law.
