Green Marine’s members are committed to strengthen the North American marine sector’s environmental performance through a process of continuous improvement, stronger relations with stakeholders, and an increased awareness of the marine industry’s activities and its environmental benefits.
Participants are shipowners, ports, terminals, shipyards and Seaway corporations operating in Canada or in the United States.
The Green Marine environmental program is intended for:
Green Marine participants include different types of cargo ships (bulk carriers, container ships, tankers, etc.) as well as ferries, tugs and barges.
On the land side, port authorities and terminal facilities of various size and activities (container and bulk terminals, stevedoring companies, etc.) and shipyards participate in the program.
Green Marine Partners are suppliers of services, products, technology and/or equipment that offer environmental advantages or opportunities to help Green Marine participants to improve their environmental performance.
Partners are organizations with business links to the marine industry – including marine agents, shippers, suppliers, marine associations, research and development centers and others – all of whom actively promote the Green Marine Program to their clients.
The Associations category is now composed of fifteen Canadian and U.S. associations that represent more than 500 companies in the maritime sector.
Maritime associations have contributed greatly to the creation of Green Marine and still play a key role in the building of the environmental program reputation.
We already have an environmental management plan in place, but what I like about the Green Marine program is using the check list. That way we learn more about the areas we need to improve on.René Hayes, Ceres Terminals Incorporated’s Environmental Manager
