Assessing the performance

To receive their certification, participants must benchmark their annual environmental performance.

Our participants –ship owners, ports, Seaway corporations, terminals and shipyards- each completes Green Marine’s detailed annual self-evaluation. The results determine the participant’s ranking for each applicable performance indicator on a 1-to-5 scale. Level 1 constitutes the monitoring of regulations, while Level 5 indicates leadership and excellence.

Green Marine has developed a self-evaluation guide to help participants assess their environmental performance with respect to the program’s criteria. There are actually three such guides, one for ship owners, one for ports and St. Lawrence Seaway corporations and the other for terminals and shipyards operators. Participants must use these guides to help them complete their yearly self-evaluation reports, which must be signed by the company’s President and sent to the Green Marine Secretariat before April 1st of each year.

The self-evaluation guides are updated on an annual basis in order to take into account changing regulations and emerging issues.

The 2016 self-evaluation guides are now available.

2016 self-evaluation guides

It is now time for participants of the Green Marine environmental program to assess their environmental performance for 2016. Self-evaluation summary reports are due on March 31st, 2017.  The self-evaluations will report on the participant’s performance over January 1 – December 31, 2016.

The new 2016 self-evaluation guides are now posted. To facilitate this yearly evaluation process, we developped three distinct guides: one for ship owners, one for ports and the Seaway corporations and finally, one for terminals and shipyards.
