September 16: World Cleanup Day

September 5, 2023

September 16 is World Cleanup Day! Green Marine invites its network of maritime companies to join the movement and clean up the shorelines or land near their operations. Alone or with colleagues, let's mobilize for a clean planet!

World Cleanup Day reminds us about the importance of preventive measures to avoid the accumulation of waste in nature and its negative effects on the environment. With its waste management performance indicator, the Green Marine program encourages its participants to reduce the amount of waste generated and to increase recycling.

Also, by taking part in a shoreline cleanup activity, program participants fulfill one of the Level 3 criteria for the Environmental Leadership and Community Relations indicators.
