Green Marine is an environmental certification program for the North American marine industry.
It is a voluntary, transparent and inclusive initiative that addresses nine key environmental issues. Participants are shipowners, ports, terminals, Seaway corporations and shipyards. The cornerstone of the Green Marine initiative is its far-reaching environmental program, which makes it possible for any marine company operating in Canada or the U.S. to reduce its environmental footprint by undertaking concrete and measurable actions.
To receive their certification, participants must benchmark their annual environmental performance through the program’s exhaustive self-evaluation guides, have their results verified by an accredited external verifier and agree to publication of their individual results.
Green Marine newsletter The Green Wave is released every two months and presents Green Marine latest members and all relevant information regarding the environmental program. It also showcases Green Marine members’ best practices and green initiatives in its Spotlight on Partners and Industry success stories sections.
