Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, November 28, 2019 – Secunda Canada LP, a fleet of offshore support vessels on Canada’s East Coast, is the newest ship owner to join the leading voluntary environmental program for North America’s maritime industry.
Based in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, Secunda Canada LP manages a harsh-weather fleet of five offshore support vessels servicing major oil and gas companies operating in Canadian East Coast areas with often less than ideal weather and ice conditions.
“We strive to protect the environment by working to minimize the impact of our operational activities by achieving a high standard of environmental performance,” said Darrell Sheppard, Secunda Canada’s President and CEO. “The Green Marine framework will provide guidance towards our goal of exceeding regulatory requirements.”
Green Marine is delighted to further expand its East Coast membership by welcoming Secunda Canada LP into the environmental certification program. “By including its entire East Coast fleet, Secunda is reflecting its strong commitment to continually improve the sustainability of its Canadian operations,” said David Bolduc, Green Marine’s executive director.
The Green Marine environmental certification program addresses key environmental issues through 12 performance indicators that include greenhouse gases, air emissions, spill prevention, waste management, environmental leadership, and community impacts – some applicable to shipping activities, others to landside operations. The certification process is rigorous and transparent with results independently verified every two years. Each company’s individual performance is made public annually.
