Quebec City, Thursday, March 5, 2020 – Green Marine is heading to Montreal for its 13th annual conference! GreenTech 2020 will take place at the Hotel Omni Mont-Royal from June 2 to 4, 2020.


GreenTech will address the environmental issues that are the objectives of the performance indicators in Green Marine’s environmental certification program, as well as other emerging issues and topical matters, notably:

  • Greenhouse gases and decarbonization
  • Artificial intelligence and technological innovation
  • Dredging/habitat restoration
  • Whale protection and conservation measures
  • Communications, public perceptions and awareness

As always, experts from Canada, the United States and Europe will present case studies, actual experience and examples of best practices. In addition to innovative sustainable development initiatives, GreenTech offers excellent networking opportunities with delegates from diverse backgrounds and expertise:  key maritime industry stakeholders, environmental group representatives, technology suppliers, as well as academic and government representatives.

True to its tradition, Green Marine will hold its annual trade show in tandem with the annual conference. All the booths are already booked! The poster exhibition illustrating various recent, current or potential scientific and/or technical research on environmental sustainability in the shipping industry is also back.


A warm welcome awaits the GreenTech 2020 delegates in Montreal. Delegates will have the opportunity to participate in one of three industry visits taking place on the afternoon of Tuesday, June 2nd, before the Opening Reception. (The number of places is limited.):

  • Port of Montreal – The Container Journey
  • Port of Montreal – The Bulk Route
  • A look at the St. Lawrence Seaway

They will also be able to visit the Grand Quay – the new Port of Montreal cruise terminal and have access to its interactive exhibition during the Certification Ceremony on Wednesday, June 3rd.

Reduced Early Bird rates until May 1st, but don’t delay!

GreenTech’s relevance makes it the not-to-be-missed event of the year for everyone engaged or interested in improving the environmental performance of maritime transportation.
