Canadian shipyard and drydock operator Heddle Shipyards is the newest business to join environmental certification program Green Marine.
Heddle Shipyards is one of the first 10 firms in North America to voluntarily participate in the program, which reviews an organization’s sustainability performance for ongoing improvement.
“We are determined to continue improving our environmental performance and participating in a rigorous and transparent environmental initiative such as Green Marine complements the sustainable development approach we have adopted,” Heddle Shipyards Health & Safety, Security & Environmental Manager Dan Cummings said.
“Green Marine is so pleased to welcome Heddle Shipyards into the Green Marine program, where it can benchmark its progress along with over 70 other U.S. and Canadian terminals and shipyards,” said Executive Director David Bolduc.
“Heddle Shipyards is already conveying its genuine commitment to sustainability through its ship recycling program that ensures vessels are appropriately dismantled at the end of their usage with all materials properly recycled or disposed,” Bolduc added.
