Port’s Green Marine certification renewed

The Port’s Green Marine certification was recently renewed. Green Marine is a voluntary environmental certification program for the North American marine industry. It targets prioritized environmental issues such as greenhouse gases, community impacts and water and land pollution. To get re-certified, the Port had to benchmark annual environmental performance through exhaustive self-evaluation guides, have results verified and agree to publication of those results.

The Port of Cleveland was a founding member of the Green Marine program in 2007. In the recertification, the Port achieved “continual improvement” by improving levels in both the Air Emissions – Greenhouse Gases and Community Relations performance indicators.
