Green Marine and the American Association of Port Authorities signed an MoU on ports' environmental sustainability at the AAPA's Annual Convention last week.
The MOU, signed during AAPA’s 102nd Annual Convention in Orlando, Florida., will serve as a "framework for increased cooperation between the two parties to advance environmental protection at seaports in the Western Hemisphere".
The AAPA said it will encourage its members to participate in the Green Marine environmental programme.
"AAPA wants to take a leadership role in regard to port environmental certification," says AAPA President and CEO Kurt J. Nagle. "We want to ensure the association gives the best tools to its members to help them benchmark and improve their environmental performance and we’ve determined that the Green Marine program is valid, applicable and scalable for port authority and terminal operations."
The AAPA's Annual Convention took place at the JW Marriott Grande Lakes on 13-15 October.
The next big AAPA event will be the association's Facilities Engineering Seminar and Expo, which will take place in Vancouver on 6-8 November.
