Green Marine certification requires commitment, effort and measurable improvement in sustainability. We encourage our members to proudly display their participation in this rigorous and transparent program for advancing environmental excellence. Here are a few examples of the creative ways in which the certification logo is being displayed by our participants. The Green Marine partner logo is also proudly shown by the many companies sharing our sustainability goals for the North American marine industry. We encourage our members that haven’t yet used the Green Marine logo to do so and to #BragAboutIt a little.
