Peninsula works with shipping companies and the supply network to help the decarbonisation of the maritime industry. 

The Solheim Cup is a biennial, transatlantic team match-play competition that features the 12 best golfers from the Ladies European Tour and the US Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour. In September, the next edition of the Solheim Cup is set to take place at Finca Cortesin, in Andalicía, Spain.

"Peninsula being the Solheim Cup’s first ‘sustainability partner’ demonstrates this market leading company’s commitment to the global energy transition as a supplier of cleaner energy. " Alicia Garrido, President of Sport & Business

John A Bassadone, Founder and Chief Executive of Peninsula, said: “We are firmly committed to the decarbonisation and sustainability of the marine energy industry and are always looking for opportunities to go beyond. The Solheim Cup’s sustainability agenda perfectly matches our aspirations, but this partnership is a great match in many other ways.

“Like the Solheim Cup, we are also strongly committed to advancing the presence of women in maritime and are proud to support this event, which puts female excellence front and centre where it truly belongs. I’m personally very proud and privileged that Peninsula is involved in this unmissable event and very much look forward to its staging in the amazing setting of Finca Cortesin.”

Alicia Garrido, President of Sport & Business, organisers of the Solheim Cup, added: “Peninsula being the Solheim Cup’s first ‘sustainability partner’ demonstrates this market leading company’s commitment to the global energy transition as a supplier of cleaner energy.

“We are convinced that the values that Peninsula upholds coincides with those of a tournament like the Solheim Cup. This competition will be the perfect platform to publicise the products, services and solutions that this company offers to its customers.”
