Kildair Service joins Green Marine
Kildair Service ULC has joined Green Marine, the largest voluntary environmental certification program in North America for the maritime industry.
The company operates a marine terminal with cutting-edge technology and now has 15 oil storage tanks in Sorel-Tracy.
“It is important for us to meet the highest safety standards, to be concerned about the environment and to ensure its protection,” said Daniel Morin, Kildair Service’s President and CEO. “Becoming a member of Green Marine permits us to set our sights higher, with clear criteria that aim to surpass current regulations guiding our actions to always do better.”
The Green Marine program offers ports, terminals and shipping companies a detailed framework to voluntarily exceed regulatory compliance in order to further reduce their environmental footprint. The comprehensive program addresses several environmental issues through its 12 performance indicators that notably focus on air quality, greenhouse gases, leak and spill prevention, water runoff treatment and community impacts. The program also assesses environmental leadership.
“Green Marine seeks the continual improvement of its participants in terms of their environmental performance, so Kildair joining our program illustrates the company’s firm commitment to greener practices,” said David Bolduc, Green Marine’s Executive Director.
“As a marine terminal that provides fuel for several ship owners that are already Green Marine participants, Kildair’s addition to Green Marine further consolidates the sustainability of the maritime industry within the St. Lawrence region,” he added. “We are delighted to welcome Kildair to the Green Marine fold.”
