TraPac Los Angeles recently entered “Green Marine environmental certification program” for the North American maritime industry, becoming the first terminal operator in California joining the program.
In light of the above, TraPac CEO Stephen Edwards, noted:
We are determined to continue improving our environmental performance, and participating in a rigorous and transparent environmental initiative such as Green Marine complements the sustainable development approach adopted by TraPac.
In fact, the Green Marine program outlines a step-by-step template for port authorities, terminal operators, ship owners and shipyard managers to voluntarily reduce their environmental footprint.
What is more, the environmental initiative addresses a number of environmental priority issues through its 13 performance indicators, including greenhouse gases, air emissions, leak and spill prevention, waste management, and underwater noise.
Green Marine is delighted to welcome a major sustainability leader within the industry. TraPac’s commitment to the environment is exemplary. Having this champion of innovation as a participant will no doubt enhance Green Marine’s knowledge pool to continually improve maritime transportation’s overall sustainability.
