Green Marine is a voluntary environmental certification program for the North American marine industry. It is a rigorous, transparent and inclusive initiative that addresses key environmental issues through its 14 performance indicators.
Participants are shipowners, ports, terminals, Seaway corporations and shipyards based in Canada and the United States.
The program encourages its participants to reduce their environmental footprint by taking concrete actions.
To receive their certification, participants must benchmark their annual environmental performance through Green Marine environmental program’s exhaustive self-evaluation guides. They also need to have their results verified by an accredited external verifier and agree to the publication of their individual results.
