Fraser Surrey Docks (FSD) the multi-purpose marine terminal on the West Coast of North America, joined Green Marine.

The Green Marine Environmental Program is an action plan that addresses nine major environmental issues identified by the Canadian and American marine industry. The program requirements are developed with the participation of industry stakeholders and representatives from environmental groups, governments and the academic sector.

“Fraser Surrey Docks’ commitment to responsible environmental management includes continual monitoring and updating of our risk assessment to ensure we employ the best environmental and safety practices at every step,” said Fraser Surrey Docks President and CEO, Jeff Scott. We look forward to working with other Green Marine participants and to share their experience.”

“We pride ourselves in the transparency and rigor of our environmental program,” explained Green Marine Executive Director, David Bolduc. “Having NGOs and the industry’s major ship owners, ports and terminals sitting at the same table and reviewing the performance indicators ensures relevance and continuous improvement.”

The North American voluntary program encourages participants to go beyond regulatory compliance and to implement concrete and measurable actions to reduce their environmental footprint. Each participant must complete an annual self-evaluation and all individual results are published. The evaluation goes through an external verification and certification process, every other year.

Fraser Surrey Docks joins a growing number of West Coast ports and shipping companies already participating in Green Marine, including Port Metro Vancouver, Prince Rupert Port Authority, Seaspan Marine Corporation, Island Tug & Barge and SMIT.
