Green Marine Overview
Winner of the Environmental Excellence award at the 2015 Lloyd’s List North American Maritime Awards, Green Marine is a voluntary marine industry initiative with the goal of achieving levels of environmental performance that exceed regulatory requirements in areas such as air/land/water emissions. There are currently more than 90 ship owners, port authorities, terminals and shipyards from coast to coast, in Canada and the United States, participating in the program. Green Marine certification process is rigorous and transparent: results are independently verified every two years and each company’s individual results are published.
