Port Corpus Christi becomes first Texan port to join Green Marine
Nov 03, 2016
CORPUS CHRISTI, TX, USA – Port Corpus Christi, ranked the fifth largest port in the United States in total tonnage, is the newest participant in Green Marine, the largest voluntary environmental program for the maritime industry in North America.
“The EMS has created a proactive attitude among employees to help improve operational efficiency and pollution prevention,” says John P. LaRue, PCCA’s executive director. “Our port wants to demonstrate its continued commitment to environmental protection and we believe Green Marine’s detailed framework can help us achieve that goal.” The Port of Corpus Christi Authority efforts under the Environmental Management System have been recognized locally and nationally.
Green Marine’s environmental program offers a template for port authorities, terminal operators and shipping lines to voluntarily reduce their environmental footprint. The comprehensive program addresses key environmental issues using 12 performance indicators that include reducing air emissions, minimizing community impacts, and demonstrating environmental leadership.
