Green Marine Europe candidates are committed to continually reducing their environmental footprint.
To obtain Green Marine Europe certification, candidates must complete all the requirements of the rigorous and transparent certification process.
Every two years, the candidate must submit the results to an external verifier accredited by Green Marine Europe. The verification process is done in person on the company’s premises unless there are extraordinary constraints. It is carried out based on the documentation provided by the candidate in support/justification of the self-evaluation. Initial certification is only granted after a candidate’s first self-evaluation results are reviewed by an external verifier.
Each candidate’s results, as well as certification status, are also published in the performance report on Green Marine Europe’s website under the candidate’s profile as well as on the Results page.
As of the very first year in the program, a candidate must achieve Level 2 for at least one of the performance indicators. Thereafter, the candidate must demonstrate a yearly improvement of one level for at least one performance indicator until Level 2 is achieved for all the applicable performance indicators.
The certification logo identifies Green Marine Europe candidates that have met the environmental program’s certification process requirements. Candidates receive a certificate every year. Visit the “Resources” page to download the Green Marine Europe certification policy (in a PDF format).
