Green Marine

Advancing Environmental Excellence

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 through its 14 performance indicators. Participants are ship owners, ports, terminals, Seaway corporations and shipyards.

To receive their certification, participants must benchmark their annual environmental performance through the program’s self-evaluation guides, have their results verified by an accredited external verifier and agree to publication of their individual results.

See the latest results

The 2020 Green Marine results show a real commitment to continual improvement, despite the pandemic. The environmental program keeps demonstrating its effectiveness and ability to inspire participants to exceed regulatory requirements.

Discover the program

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 U.S. to reduce its environmental footprint by undertaking concrete and measurable actions.

Green Marine Europe

The Green Marine Europe environmental program only involves European ship owners following our partnership with Surfrider Foundation Europe. The Green Marine Europe label functions according to the same model of rigour and transparency as in North America.

A pivotal element of Green Marine’s success from the outset has been the active support from environmental stakeholders and  governments.
