Green Marine and the Association of Canadian Port Authorities (ACPA) have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the goal of jointly expanding efforts to reduce the marine industry’s environmental footprint and encourage the industry to continuously improve its environmental performance.

The announcement was made in conjunction with the ACPA 56th Annual General Meeting and Assembly taking place in Belledune, New Brunswick. The MoU was signed earlier this summer during Green Marine’s annual conference, GreenTech 2014, in Saint John New Brunswick. The agreement will serve as a framework for the advancement of the Green Marine Environmental Program and increased collaboration on related initiatives. ACPA and Green Marine will also be working together to expand the participation of both ACPA member ports and terminal operators in the Green Marine Environmental Program.

"This agreement reflects the port authorities’ continued commitment to environmental sustainability,’’ said ACPA President, Wendy Zatylny. With this agreement, we will work together to develop additional tools and measures to strengthen the industry’ environmental performance.’’

"Green Marine looks forward to working closely with ACPA to advance the development of the environmental program and recruit additional companies to participate in Green Marine" said Green Marine Management Corporation President, Raymond Johnston.

Both Green Marine and ACPA are seeking to establish a productive working relationship under this MoU. To that end, they’ve exchanged memberships, with Green Marine being a Supporter of ACPA and ACPA, in turn, now an association member of the Green Marine Management Corporation.
