Green Marine

Since 2008, the Port of Québec has served as a founding member of Green Marine, an ambitious environmental program for the Canadian and American marine industry. It is a voluntary program with the following primary objectives:

  • Improve the marine industry’s environmental performance through a continuous improvement process
  • Build strong relationships with seaway stakeholders
  • Heighten understanding of the marine industry’s activities and environmental benefits

The Port of Québec maintains the highest level of excellence in Green Marine certification

In 2021, we maintained the highest level for each of the Green Marine certification criteria.

Of the 48 participating port authorities in North America, the Port of Québec is the only port that has maintained the highest level for all indicators for a fourth consecutive year.

Green Marine is a rigorous, transparent and inclusive initiative that tackles priority environmental issues based on 14 distinct performance indicators. Each year, every Green Marine member must measure its performance on a scale of 1 to 5 according to the different performance indicators.

5 - Excellence et leadership | 4 - Introduction de nouvelles technologies | 3 - Stratégie de gestion et mesure de l'empreinte | 2 - Utilisation systématique de bonnes pratiques | 1 - Suivi réglementaire
