The Canadian Ferry Operators Association (CFOA) has joined in 'Green Marine', a joint Canada-U.S. environmental initiative.

“Canada’s waterways are the lifeblood of our members,” said Serge Buy, CEO of CFOA.  “Without maintaining clean lakes and rivers, the marine transport industry in Canada would suffer greatly.”

Green Marine was founded in 2007 by major marine industry associations, ports and shipping companies in Canada and the U.S. and its voluntary environmental program encourages participants to improve their environmental performance by undertaking concrete and measurable actions.

“Passenger transportation is an important part of the maritime industry, said Green Marine executive director, David Bolduc.  “We welcome CFOA’s membership in Green Marine, as it sends a clear signal that ferry operators are willing to take part in the collective effort to reduce the industry’s environmental footprint and it will also highlight the environmental efforts they are already deploying.”

“We have a responsibility to our generation and future generations to ensure we have clean waterways,” added Jamie Marshall, Chair of CFOA.

About CFOA
The Canadian Ferry Operators Association is the national voice of ferries in Canada. Our members operate with the highest professional and operational standards and promote the safe operation of ferry services in Canada. 

About Green Marine
Green Marine is a voluntary marine industry initiative with the goal of achieving levels of environmental performance that exceed regulatory requirements in areas such as air emissions, community impacts, dry bulk handling and storage, and environmental leadership. Green Marine relevance and credibility is proven through its growing number of supporters: more than 40 governments, municipalities and environmental groups have endorsed the Green Marine environmental program. There are currently over 70 shipowners, port authorities, terminals and shipyards from coast to coast, in Canada and the United States, participating in the program.
