GCT Celebrates another year of high marks in Green Marine

VANCOUVER, BC, CANADA – GCT Global Container Terminals has been proudly Green Marine certified since 2014. Green Marine is a voluntary certification program for the maritime industry, which challenges its members to go above and beyond what is required by regulations in regards to environmental, air, land, water, and community stewardship.

In 2019, GCT earned level 5 certification (excellence and leadership) in four out of five performance indicators, across all four GCT Terminals and is officially Green Marine Certified for another year.


GCT’s Global Commitment is our ongoing, public promise to continual improvement and going beyond regulation to reduce impacts on the environment and the community. Over the past ten years, GCT has been increasingly recognized for its efforts to decouple growth from emissions by investing in technology, densifying existing footprints, and improving energy efficiency.

We are proud of the 2019 Green Marine results for all of GCT’s terminals. We thank Green Marine and our fellow industry participants for their commitment to reducing the environmental and community impacts of the maritime sector.
