As the chief executive of Wärtsilä, one of the world’s leading power technology and services providers for the maritime and energy industries, Håkan Agnevall has called on governments and companies to speed up decarbonization in these two sectors that account for roughly a third of the world’s carbon emissions.

Agnevall himself joined Wärtsilä as CEO in February 2021 from Volvo Buses, a subsidiary of the Swedish commercial vehicle maker where he was president for eight years. He took the helm at Wärtsilä at a unique time for the group, with a tough market situation heavily impacted by the pandemic.

In conversation with IMD President Jean-Francois Manzoni, Agnevall reflects on the multitude of demands placed on leaders of public companies and delves into the transformation facing maritime and energy industries today.
