Green Marine’s members are committed to strengthening the North American marine sector’s environmental performance through a process of continuous improvement, stronger relations with stakeholders, and increased overall awareness of the marine industry’s activities and 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.
SODES – the St. Lawrence Economic Development Council – is proud to be able to rely on the expertise of the Green Marine team when it comes to environmental matters. The council is delighted with the steadily increasing knowledge amassed by Green Marine over the years. It confirms without doubt that the Green Marine program is structured to evolve and readily adapts to the marine industry’s diverse issues with practical solutions.Nicole Trepanier, President, SODES
