Green Marine releases its 2019 program criteria

March 4, 2019

Green Marine has just released its 2019 performance indicator criteria for North American ship owners, port authorities, terminal operators and shipyard managers. In keeping with its commitment to continual improvement, Green Marine annually reviews, strengthens and expands its environmental certification program criteria.

Summaries of the Green Marine’s environmental program for 2019 are now available online. The criteria will be used to benchmark environmental performance between January 1 and December 31, 2019. Program updates from 2018 to 2019 relate to the performance indicators for waste management, oily water, greenhouse gas and air pollutant emissions, and underwater noise.

Green Marine participants are currently assessing their environmental performance for 2018, Green Marine’s 11th year of evaluations. The 2018 self-evaluation guides are also posted on line. They help participants to benchmark their environmental performance against Green Marine’s criteria for 12 distinct performance indicators – some applicable to ports, terminals, and shipyards, and others to ship owners. Results will be released at the beginning of June at GreenTech 2019, Green Marine’s annual conference.
