Message From Our CEO

Westport Fuel Systems has been a global leader in clean transportation technologies for decades. We have been at the front lines of the shift to sustainable mobility. As the global economy restarts post COVID-19, there have been strong signals for a green recovery and associated stimulus spending to build a better, more resilient and low-carbon economy. A green recovery presents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to transform our transportation systems and how we move people and goods. The urgency of global climate change means we must act now and we are ready to do our part.

We are committed to the decarbonization of the transportation sector and the urgent need to deploy scalable, carbon neutral solutions.

We are committed to the decarbonization of the transportation sector and the urgent need to deploy scalable, carbon neutral solutions. The path to sustainable transportation must be led by cost competitive and market-ready technologies as we work towards longer-term targets for net-zero emissions. We need realistic transition road maps based on affordability for all geographic markets. We believe a focus on renewable and decarbonized gases as well as clean and sustainable mobility offers an opportunity to boost the economic recovery, retain and create jobs and achieve our emission reduction goals.

Sustainability is one of our guiding principles. Our sustainability vision is centred on our product portfolio of lower-carbon clean transportation solutions and our ongoing commitment to mitigate the operational footprint of our activities. Our 2019 report provides an opportunity to discuss our activities, our accomplishments and our contributions but also to disclose our challenges and identify opportunities for improvement.

Our continued success depends on our global team, our relationships with stakeholders and our ability to enhance shareholder value. We are focused on driving sustainable growth through a strong commitment to our environmental, social and governance programs and performance. Thank you for your support of Westport Fuel Systems.

Leadership Perspective

A message from Karen Hamberg, VP Sustainability and External Affairs

Sustainability is at the core of our technology strategy, our product portfolio and our global operations.  It drives our business success and enables our customers to advance their own sustainability commitments and differentiate themselves in a competitive market. As a clean transportation solutions company, we help our customers adopt and deploy low-carbon and renewable gaseous fuels to accelerate the transition to a decarbonized transport sector.

A commitment to reducing the impact of our operational footprint is a critical element of our business performance.

Westport Fuel Systems has been leading the shift to more sustainable transportation for decades. In an increasingly competitive marketplace, the ability of a clean transportation solution to scale is achieved by products that reduce a customer’s total cost of ownership, enable OEMs to meet regulations at an affordable cost and deliver greenhouse gas and criteria air pollutant emission reduction benefits. The expanded use of renewable gas or biomethane around the world offers another proof point of the scalability of gaseous fuels to deliver net-zero carbon transportation today.

A commitment to reducing the impact of our operational footprint is a critical element of our business performance. Our sustainability efforts are focused on ethics and compliance, environmental leadership, fairness and concern for employees and supply chain responsibility. With close to 1,300 employees around the world, our people are Westport Fuel Systems’ greatest asset. Their collective action across the Company to design, engineer and manufacture clean transportation solutions and to live our values of integrity, respect and perseverance have built our distinctive workplace culture.

With two years of global data, we now have a baseline from which to set public targets and objectives for improvement. Our 2020 report will be developed in accordance with the core requirements of the Global Reporting Initiative Standards and aligned to the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (“SASB standards”) to ensure consistency and comparability in our disclosures and a more comprehensive disclosure of our economic, environmental and social impacts.

We have launched a sustainability portal (https://wfsinc.com/sustainability/) to better communicate our progress against key environmental, social, and governance performance indicators. We welcome your feedback or inquiries at sustainability@wfsinc.com

Thank you for your support of Westport Fuel Systems,


Karen Hamberg
