ENVIRONMENT The SJPA makes it a priority to preserve the environmental integrity of the harbour and the land surrounding it — our goal is to ensure port activities are as sustainable as they can be. We follow the best practices that are reviewed annually by the Association of Canadian Port Authorities and comply with the marine environment protection policies, programs and codes outlined by Transport Canada. THE ST. JOHN’S PORT AUTHORITY IS A PROUD CERTIFIED MEMBER OF THE GREEN MARINE PROGRAM. Green Marine is an organization with a mandate to strengthen the marine industry’s environmental performance. Through Green Marine, the St. John’s Port Authority benchmarks its environmental performance annually. 24
