Green Marine is an environmental certification program for the North American marine industry.
It is a voluntary, transparent and inclusive initiative that addresses key environmental issues through its 12 performance indicators. 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’s newsletter is released every two months and presents all relevant information regarding the environmental program. It also showcases best practices and green initiatives.
The latest edition of Green Marine newsletter is now online. The newsletter shows a fresh new look with all the same informative content on the environmental program, its members, industry success stories and, of course, all the details on the upcoming annual conference, GreenTech 2016.
