Montréal – Logistec Corporation (“Logistec”) and its U.S. Gulf Coast affiliate, Gulf Stream Marine, Inc. (“GSM”), announced 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 together key marine environmental issues to reduce their environmental footprint through concrete actions. The program sets rigorous objectives through its 13 performance indicators and participants must measure, evaluate and publish their environmental results to continue to participate in the program. Accredited external verifiers review all the data to ensure the requirements are being met, every two years.
“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.”
