In June 2011, Port Saint John joined as the first Atlantic Canadian member of Green Marine’s environmental program.
Green Marine is a voluntary North American environmental initiative, that enjoys an expanded mandate with members on the east and west coasts, both in Canada and the United States. Green Marine has rapidly gained a reputation for credibility and transparency and for challenging participant companies to improve their environmental performance beyond regulatory compliance.
Green Marine’s main goals are to:
- Strengthen environmental performance through a process of continuous improvement;
- Build strong relations with marine waterway stakeholders;
- Heighten understanding of the industry’s activities and environmental benefits.
Environmental Assessments for the Saint John Port Authority may be found at the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency.
