The Port of Belledune in Canada has signed up to Green Marine, the largest voluntary environmental certification programme for the maritime industry in North America.

The port has joined the programme to better manage its approach to environmental initiatives and performance.

“We want to be proactive and Green Marine can guide us to further improve our environmental performance,” stated Belledune Port Authority (BPA) president & CEO, Denis Caron. “Our port stringently adheres to all regulations and we take our role in safeguarding the environment very seriously.”

The deep-water facility port in New Brunswick, which includes a barge terminal, roll-on roll-off terminal and modular component fabrication facility, will now focus on addressing key environmental issues using the programme’s 12 performance indicators. These include reducing air emissions, minimising community impacts, and demonstrating environmental leadership

The Port of Belledune’s decision to join Green Marine follows the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Green Marine and the Association of Canadian Port Authorities (ACPA) in 2014, to jointly expand efforts to reduce the marine industry’s environmental footprint.

“With all 18 Canadian port authorities now Green Marine participants, the port industry is sending a clear message of its commitment and involvement into continuously improving its environmental performance,” said ACPA president, Wendy Zatylny.

Green Marine’s certification process results are independently verified every two years and each company’s individual results are published.
