G3 port terminals show environmental leadership in Green Marine

29 July 20222 min reading

All five G3 port terminals are certified by Green Marine and report performance at or well above the average for the program’s participants.

The Canadian G3 operates port terminals in North Vancouver, BC; Thunder Bay, ON; Hamilton, ON, Trois-Rivières, QC and Québec City, QC. At a recent event in Montreal, the G3 terminals received their Green Marine Certifications for 2021.

Green Marine is a voluntary environmental certification program for the North American maritime industry. Port terminals are assessed on their performance in the areas of Greenhouse Gases and Air Pollutants, Spill Prevention and Stormwater Management, Dry Bulk Handling and Storage, Community Impacts, Environmental Leadership and Waste Management. Participants are evaluated yearly on a 1-to-5 scale.

The overall average for the 2021 environmental performance by Green Marine participants is 3. G3 terminals’ average scores ranged from 3 (“Integrated management and quantified impacts”) to 5 (“Excellence and leadership”).

G3’s port terminals have shown steady improvement in performance since becoming participants in Green Marine. “G3 began with the vision of building a smarter path from farmers fields to global markets,” says CEO Don Chapman. “This vision extends beyond our industry-leading efficiency moving grain quickly to market, to include environmental leadership as well. We are proud be part of Green Marine and congratulate the G3 port terminals’ staff on their continued achievements in the program.”
