The Interlake Steamship Company joins Green Marine

Interlake Interlake is the largest privately held US-flagged fleet on the Great Lakes

The Interlake Steamship Company will help vessel efficiency as the first US Great Lakes shipowner to join Green Marine.

Currently the largest privately held US-flagged fleet on the Great Lakes, the Interlake Steamship Company said it is committed to making its vessels the most efficient and environmentally responsible in the shipping industry.

“Green Marine certification aligns well with our strategic initiatives regarding the environment,” said Interlake president Mark W. Barker. “We have a long-term vision for our industry and we are investing in our ships and our equipment to offer the most reliable, efficient delivery within an industry that is already the greenest form of transportation available.”

Environmental roadmap

Operating in North America and Canada, Green Marine’s voluntary environmental certification programme offers a roadmap for ship owners, port authorities, terminal operators and shipyards to reduce their environmental footprint.

The programme addresses key environmental issues using 12 performance indicators.

All results are independently verified every two years and each company’s individual performance made public annually.

David Bolduc, Green Marine’s executive director, commented: “With its visionary fleet modernization over the past decade and all the investments made towards more sustainable operations, there’s no doubt that Interlake is committed to continual environmental improvement, which is the core of the Green Marine program.”
