LOGISTEC Corporation (“LOGISTEC”) and its U.S. Gulf Coast affiliate, Gulf Stream Marine, Inc. (“GSM”), are proud to announce the addition of five terminals in Texas that will be certified as part of the Green Marine Environmental Certification Program. GSM’s Corpus Christi, Manchester, Brownsville, Care, and Freeport terminals in Texas will be joining LOGISTEC’s 13 other Green Marine certified terminals in Canada and the USA, further solidifying LOGISTEC’s commitment to reducing its marine environmental footprint.
Green Marine is a voluntary environmental certification program for the North American and now European marine industry that encourages leading shipowners, ports, terminals, seaway corporations, and shipyards to address key marine environmental issues to reduce their environmental footprint concrete actions. The program sets rigorous objectives through its 13 performance indicators, and participants must measure, evaluate, and publish their environmental results to continue participating in the program. Accredited external verifiers review all the data to ensure the requirements are being met every two years.
“As a proud founding member of the Green Marine program, we believe strongly in its mission of reducing the marine industry’s environmental footprint,” said Madeleine Paquin, President & CEO of LOGISTEC. “This program is not only well aligned with LOGISTEC’s strategic objectives; it encourages other companies to evaluate ways they too can contribute to a cleaner marine environment and makes us all accountable. We are doing this for our industry today and future generations.”
“Nothing is more important than ensuring we do our part to reduce our marine environmental footprint in support of a strong supply chain,” said Rodney Corrigan, President of LOGISTEC Stevedoring Inc.
“We’re so pleased to have Logistec’s U.S. Gulf Coast affiliate, Gulf Stream Marine, join the Logistec terminal locations that have been certified annually since the inception of the Program,” said David Bolduc, executive director for Green Marine. “Sustainability is clearly a priority for Logistec Corporation as they continue full integration of the Green Marine program in all their North American terminals, including recent acquisitions.”
