Clean and Affordable Energy for Communities
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 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 organised 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 World LPG Association (WLPGA), with BW LPG CEO Martin Ackermann accepting a position on its Board. For BW LPG, the WLPGA is the voice of the LPG industry. The WLPGA serves to promote, inform and educate the benefits of LPG across both industrialised and developing countries as well as about the importance of LPG as a feedstock for every-day appliances, construction materials etc. Within the association, members work on new and innovative uses for LPG – such as LPG as a clean marine fuel or LPG for smaller and medium sized power projects.
