MONTRÉAL, Québec, June 6, 2024 – LOGISTEC announced that its Deception Bay terminal, located in the Arctic region, is now officially certified as part of the Green Marine Environmental Program, the first terminal to be certified in the Far North. With a total of 27 certified terminals across North America, LOGISTEC is leading the drive to reduce its marine environmental footprint for a sustainable future.

“This achievement at Deception Bay is particularly meaningful because our teams are working in challenging conditions where climate events have an impact on the way we operate at the terminal,” said Rodney Corrigan, President of LOGISTEC. “Green marine provides a framework to reduce our carbon footprint, which is crucial to support a strong and sustainable supply chain.”

“As a founding member of Green Marine, we strongly believe in its mission to take actions to contribute to a cleaner marine environment,” said Sean Pierce, CEO of LOGISTEC. “This program is an integral part of LOGISTEC’s ESG roadmap and sustainability objectives. We will continue to support this mission and bring it to the international level, for our industry and for future generations.”

The Green Marine program sets rigorous port terminal operator objectives through performance indicators. Green Marine encourages leading shipowners, ports, terminals, seaway corporations to address together key marine environmental issues to find solutions to protect biodiversity, water and soil quality. LOGISTEC is the company with the highest number of Green Marine-certified terminals in North America.
