GREEN MARINE is a voluntary environmental certification program for the North American maritime industry. Born of a collective industry effort, Green Marine aims to guide the maritime industry towards environmental excellence by encouraging maritime enterprises to adopt concrete measurable actions that go beyond regulatory obligations. The program therefore deals specifically with issues related to maritime transportation, such as the quality of air, water and soil, as well as community relations.
It is an inclusive, rigorous and transparent initiative that brings together several types of participants: ship owners, ports, terminals, shipyards, and the Seaway corporations based in Canada and the United States.
For many years now, the marine fleet at Oceanex has been Green Marine certified. We are very excited to announce that the St. John’s terminal at Oceanex has recently become a Green Marine Certified Terminal! This certification is indicative of our commitment to consistently improve our environmental performance and reduce our environmental footprint as a company.
