London, UK, September 5, 2014 – Green Marine has been named as a finalist for the inaugural Ship Efficiency Awards 2014 hosted by Lloyd’s Register and taking place Oct. 2nd in London, immediately following Ship Efficiency: The Event 2014 being held in association with mobile satellite communications provider Inmarsat.
The Green Marine environmental program was selected from an international pool of nominees as one of five finalists for the Initiative of the Year award.
Green Marine members are committed to strengthening the North American marine sector’s environmental performance. The program continues year after year to demonstrate its ability to advance environmental excellence. Environmental performance results are continuously improving since the first year of reporting in 2008, confirming the program’s effectiveness in encouraging the industry to surpass regulatory environmental requirements. There are currently more than 80 ship owners, port authorities, terminals and shipyards in Canada and the United States participating in the program.
The first-ever Ship Efficiency Awards, hosted by Lloyd’s Register and organized by Fathom, will recognize and celebrate the organizations and individuals within the maritime sector that excel in efficient operations, implement fresh thinking, offer proven efficiency benefits or advance technological innovation.
“The Green Marine initiative has expanded rapidly since being launched just over six years ago,” said David Bolduc, Green Marine’s executive director, in response to the finalist announcement. “This nomination is a testament to the program’s success and, even more importantly, to its relevance and credibility throughout North America and even internationally”.
