Team and structure

Corporate leadership is one of the fundamental elements of Green Marine’s success.

Our structure

Green Marine is managed by the Green Marine Management Corporation, a non-profit organization. This corporation is overseen by a board of directors, an entity composed of the presidents of companies participating in the environmental certification program elected at the Annual General Meeting.

Board of directors

The board of directors allows participants to actively engage in the program’s development and implementation and to determine Green Marine’s strategic orientations. It is comprised of nine members, including the leaders of American and Canadian companies, thus highlighting the partnership’s binational composition and diverse membership that extends to several aspects of the industry.
