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 13 performance indicators. Participants are shipowners, 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.

The 2019 Green Marine results indicate unwavering commitment to a broader range of priorities. For this 12th year of certification, the environmental program continues to demonstrate 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 is now available to European ship owners following our partnership with Surfrider Foundation Europe. The Green Marine Europe label will function 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.
