Sustainable Arctic navigation project with Heriot-Watt University (Scotland)

January 23, 2024

Green Marine is proud to announce its active collaboration with researchers from Heriot-Watt University (Scotland) on the approved study, "Navigating the Future: Collaborative Knowledge-Sharing for a Just and Sustainable Maritime Future." This collaborative initiative aims to explore Green Marine's innovative model, leveraging our best practices and lessons learned to advance sustainable shipping in the Arctic.

Green Marine will be taking part in Heriot-Watt University’s polar-related discussions at their online knowledge sharing and networking session about “What support does the Arctic and sub-Arctic maritime industry need to achieve a more sustainable future?”

David Bolduc, Green Marine’s president, has been invited to outline the maritime industry’s leading voluntary environmental certification program, as well as to facilitate the discussions with some of Green Marine’s participants during the online knowledge-sharing and networking event on Thursday, February 1, from 10 am to noon EST.

“The researchers want to learn more about how our collaborative model works, as well as how our membership’s voluntary sharing of actual experience and best practices could be of benefit to sustainable shipping in Arctic and sub-Arctic waters,” he says.
