The Washington Maritime Federation is a supporting association member of Green Marine, a voluntary environmental certification program for the North American marine industry. It is a rigorous, transparent and inclusive initiative that addresses key environmental issues. Participants are ship owners, ports, terminals, seaway corporations and shipyards based in Canada and the United States. To receive certification, participants must benchmark their annual environmental performance through exhaustive evaluation guides, verified by an accredited external verifier and agree to publication of their individual results.
