Wärtsilä has been selected as a constituent of the Ethibel Sustainability

based on research carried out by Vigeo, a leading European specialist
organisation in the assessment of responsible performance.

"The selection to this Sustainability Index is yet another recognition of our
continuous pursuit for ever more sustainable product and service offerings,
as well as for good corporate citizenship, and encourages us to further
continue our efforts in these fields," says Marko Vainikka, Director,
Corporate Relations and Sustainability.

"As a global leader in complete lifecycle solutions for the marine and energy
markets, Wärtsilä plays a key role in providing environmentally sound
solutions and services that enable its customers to develop their businesses
in a sustainable way. This approach is the basis of our sustainability work
