The program’s scope addresses impacts to air, land, water, and communities. Participants earn their certification by exceeding regulatory requirements, achieving criteria as defined collectively by the membership, and committing to continual self-improvement.

The annual certification process culminates with the publication of the results and the GreenTech conference. Geared for ship owners and operators, designers, engineers, and environmental advocates; this webinar will give an overview of Green Marine, include Q&A, and invite attendees to keep in touch and get involved.
