Québec city, March 1, 2019 – Green Marine is heading back to the Great Lakes for its 12th annual conference. GreenTech 2019 will take place at the Cleveland Westin Downtown Hotel from June 5-7, 2019.


The conference will discuss issues directly related to Green Marine environmental certification’s performance indicators, such as:

  • Greenhouse gas emissions
  • Community relations and impacts

GreenTech 2019 will also tackle emerging issues and other topics relevant to vessel and port sustainability, including:

  • The human factor in shipping sustainability
  • Dredging and habitat restoration
  • Big data / data analytics
  • Traffic management

As always, there will be expert knowledge, actual experience and best practices shared, along with detailed information about innovative sustainability initiatives, and great networking opportunities.

GreenTech 2019 will as usual feature a commercial exhibition. The Green Marine conference has earned an enviable reputation for showcasing the latest sustainability technology and innovation for the marine industry. As a result, it has become the key event to convey efforts and advancements in maritime transportation sustainability to a keenly interested group of attendees. A quarter of the booths has already been sold! Hurry to book yours!


The scientific posters presentation, introduced last year, is also back! The scientific researchers and non-governmental organizations are invited to submit proposals for poster presentations at GreenTech 2019. The presentations will convey recent, current and/or proposed scientific research focused on improving the shipping industry’s environmental sustainability. The submission deadline for proposals is April 15, 2019.


A hearty welcome awaits the delegates of GreenTech 2019: they will be invited to visit the iconic Rock & Roll Hall of Fame on Thursday night for the certification reception and the Port of Cleveland is providing a cruise tour of its premises. Both tours have limited seating.

The early bird discount applies only till April 1st, after which all conference registrations will revert to the standard rates.

GreenTech’s relevance makes it the essential annual gathering for everyone involved or interested in improving maritime transportation’s environmental performance.

Information about the program, call for posters, site tours, registration, accommodations, sponsorships and booth reservations is all outlined in the GreenTech webpages.
