Integrated Logistics becomes newest participant of Green Maritime
Green Marine's newest member and the first QSL subsidiary to join the voluntary environmental certification program for the maritime industry of North America is Integrated Logistics.
“Our economy in this province has always been tied to the development of our natural resources, to do this responsibly we must focus on all aspects of the supply chain that supports these industries,” said. Andrew Short, COO Integrated Logistics.
Integrated Logistics, with terminals in Argentia, Long Pond, and Goose Bay, said it shares Green Marine's emphasis on continuously improving sustainability. Integrated Logistics is joining its parent company, QSL, which has been a participant in Green Marine since 2015.
Via its 14 success metrics, the Green Marine Environmental Program tackles a range of environmental priority concerns, including greenhouse gases, air emissions, prevention of leaks and spills, waste management, community relations, and underwater noise. For landside operations, some metrics apply and others apply to shipping activities.
The performance metric measuring community ties was added by Green Marine earlier this year.
It is said that the certification process is thorough and open, with each participant's individual performance made public annually and the results independently checked every two years.
