The Montreal Port Authority (MPA) received environmental certification from Green Marine in recognition of its excellence in leadership and effective environmental management in its port activities. The results were presented at GreenTech 2017, Green Marine’s annual conference, held on May 31 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Green Marine was also celebrating its 10th anniversary as North America’s environmental certification program for the marine industry.
The self-evaluation covered the period from January 1 to December 31, 2016. The MPA distinguished itself among Green Marine’s 36 member ports by achieving the highest average, continuing its tradition of staying in the top tier of port authorities contributing to sustainable development.
“This excellent performance shows our ongoing commitment to shoulder our environmental leadership in North America’s marine industry and to reduce our ecological footprint by walking the talk,” said Sylvie Vachon, President and CEO of the MPA and newly elected to the Green Marine Board of Directors.
For Claude Deschambault, Environment Director at the MPA: “This result is due to a team effort that involved every department of the MPA.” Each department contributed in its respective field to fulfill the environmental program’s requirements comprising about 100 performance indicators.
