Reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) and air pollutant emission.
See below the criteria each terminal or shipyard has to fulfill to achieve each level of performance.
Monitoring of regulations.
2.1. Implement policies and communications that discourage idling of vehicles powered by Internal Combustion Engines. Include, at minimum, participant’s own road, off-road, and unlicensed vehicles.
2.2. Promote sustainable transportation practices by employees.
Examples: Incentives for public transport and carpooling, reorganization of business travel, installation of bicycle racks, etc.
2.3. Implement measures to reduce truck congestion and idling.
3.1. Complete an annual report on GHG emissions.
Note: Include Scope 1 at minimum, and Scope 2 is recommended, as defined by the GHG Reporting Protocol.
Note: See Annex 1-A.
4.1. Complete a detailed inventory of GHGs and air pollutants emitted within the boundary of the participant’s footprint within the last 5 years. Inventory should include key GHGs: CO2, CH4, and N2O and criteria air pollutants, such as NOx, SOx, VOC, and PM.
Note: Participants that are in nonattainment areas or that have potential “hotspots” should place a priority on an inventory of their relevant criteria air pollutants. Criteria air pollutants refer to those that are reported in Environment Canada’s National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI) or U.S. EPA’s National Emissions Inventory (NEI).
4.2. Adopt a performance plan for air emissions resulting directly from the participant’s activities. In the plan, define reduction measures and establish reduction targets.
Note: See Annex 1-B.
5.1. Demonstrate continual reduction of the participant’s direct GHG emissions (in intensity).
Note: Each participant defines its own baseline year for measuring continual improvement.
5.2 New criterion, OPTIONAL for 2020
Achieve an annual average reduction in GHG intensity of ≥1% based on the inventory (criterion 4.1) or design baseline accepted by Green Marine.
