Verification process: in immersion with CORSICA linea

June 14, 2024

To obtain their Green Marine Europe certification, participants must complete all the requirements of the rigorous and transparent certification process. Focus on one of these stages - the external verification - with CORSICA linea.

Every participant must submit its results to an external verifier accredited by Green Marine Europe. The verification process is carried out in person every two years on the company’s premises and is based on objective evidence provided by the participant to justify their self-assessment.

Green Marine Europe’s Outreach Officer, Romain BENOIT, took part in this verification day on May 6 as an observer with the CORSICA linea teams. To conclude the day, Chloé TVERNI Sustainable Development Manager CORSICA linea, Romain BENOIT, and Green Marine Europe verifier, Nicolas CARION, were welcome by Captain Thomas QUENNEPOIX and Chief Benoît Ryckeboer on board their new vessel A GALEOTTA.
