WINNIPEG, MANITOBA, US — All five G3 Canada port terminals maintained their Green Marine environmental certifications for 2023.

Green Marine is a voluntary certification program for the North American marine industry. Green Marine results are third-party verified every two years, and 2023 was a self-evaluation year.

Port terminals are evaluated and work to improve on seven performance indicators: air emissions – greenhouse gases and pollutants; community impacts; community relations; dry bulk handling and storage; environmental leadership; spill prevention and stormwater management; and waste management.

G3’s port terminals in Vancouver, British Columbia, and Hamilton, Ontario, maintained their near-perfect scores; G3’s terminals in Thunder Bay, Ontario; Trois-Rivieres, Quebec; and Quebec City, Québec, improved their performance in areas including community relations, dry bulk handling and storage, and spill prevention.

“We’re proud of our commitment to Green Marine and the results we are achieving,” said Don Chapman, chief executive officer, G3. “Congratulations to the staff at all our port terminals who are driving these impressive results.”

Headquartered in Winnipeg, Manitoba, G3 operates 19 grain elevators in Western Canada and one in Quebec, and the five port terminals. G3 has 52.9 million bushels of licensed grain storage and is the 33rd largest grain handling company in North America as listed in Sosland Publishing Co.’s2024 Grain & Milling Annual.
