Canadian Ports To Reward 'Green' Shipping

by Mike Godfrey, Tax-News.com, Washington

30 January 2014


Two west coast Canadian ports, Prince Rupert and Metro Vancouver, have launched incentives for ships that adopt eco-friendly technologies to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The two ports have adopted the Green Wave program offering discounted harbor dues to commercial vessels that implement emission reduction measures or other environmental practices. The program replaces Prince Rupert port's Environmental Incentive Program for Vessels, which was introduced in 2013.

President and CEO of the Prince Rupert Port Authority Don Krusel said: "By increasing the scope of our environmental incentive program, we've included more qualification standards for arriving vessels that are consistent across the global shipping industry. We're proud to be accelerating the industry's movement toward greater efficiency and sustainability through programs like Green Wave."
