Green Marine is an environmental certification program for the North American marine industry. It is a voluntary, transparent, and inclusive initiative that addresses key environmental issues.
Participants are ship owners, ports, terminals, and shipyards. The cornerstone of the Green Marine initiative is its far-reaching environmental program, which makes it possible for any marine company operating in Canada or the US to reduce its environmental footprint by undertaking concrete and measurable actions. To receive their certification, participants must benchmark their annual environmental performance through the program’s exhaustive self-evaluation guides, have their results verified by an accredited external verifier and agree to publication of their individual results.
