Press Release
Wednesday, April 10, 2013

Squamish Terminals (SQT), a B.C. deep-water, break-bulk terminal, has signed on as a participant to Green Marine.

Green Marine encourages its participants, ship owners, ports, terminals and shipyards, to undertake concrete actions that go beyond regulatory requirements aimed at improving environmental performance and sustainability.
Green Marine’s success is based on a 5-year track record of participating companies demonstrating improved environmental performance.

Squamish Terminals already stands out for its environmental stewardship by being regular participants in the Squamish Estuary Management Committee and hosting the annual Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup in Squamish.

“In the past couple of decades SQT has played a key role in the preservation and enhancement of both Howe Sound marine life and of the estuary through its partnerships with local conservation groups, said Ron Anderson, Squamish Terminals President & C.E.O.

We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to work, live, play and volunteer in this truly wonderful community.” The company strives for continuous improvement in its environmental performance by seeking ways to reduce the risks associated with all operations.

According to Green Marine executive director, David Bolduc, joining the environmental program is a step towards this goal: "Green Marine's evaluation and reporting system will allow Squamish Terminals to benchmark its environmental performance. It is also an excellent way to demonstrate its commitment to sustainability."
