Peninsula, the leading global independent supplier of marine energy, has signed a sustainability partner sponsorship agreement with the Solheim Cup, the most prestigious event in women’s golf.

With a global physical supply network and customer book comprising the world’s biggest shipping companies, Peninsula is a key player in the decarbonisation of the maritime industry. We are therefore excited to support the Solheim Cup’s sustainability activity and to develop fresh goals together in the coming months.

The Solheim Cup is a biennial, transatlantic team match-play competition featuring the 12 best golfers from both the Ladies European Tour and the U.S. Ladies Professional Golf Association Tour.

This September, the Solheim Cup travels to Spain for the first time. It will be hosted at Finca Cortesin, in Andalucía.

The event is undoubtedly the most coveted trophy in women’s professional golf and this year’s European team claim is #VAMOSGIRLS (go girls), a slogan that incorporates the Spanish language, honouring the host country.

John A Bassadone, Founder and CEO of Peninsula said “I am thrilled Peninsula will be the sustainability partner for this year’s Solheim Cup. 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. Vamos girls!”

Alicia Garrido, President of Sport & Business, 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,” she concluded.
