It was announced on 14 October that the Port of Galveston is going green with a number of environmental initiatives, including membership in Green Marine, the leading voluntary environmental programme for North America’s maritime industry.
In the words of Rodger E Rees, port director and CEO: ‘Joining Green Marine will help us identify and implement best practices, manage our environmental initiatives, measure our progress and strive for continuous improvement. Sharing new technologies and best practices with other Green Marine members is another benefit that we’ll tap into.’
Rees added that the port will look for opportunities to integrate new sustainability practices like solar power as it implements its new 20-year strategic master plan. The port is seeking Green Marine certification as a standardized process to benchmark and measure progress in its environmental performance.
