Port Canaveral has again achieved Green Marine re-certification, marking its eighth consecutive recognition for environmental excellence in port operations, according to a press release.

The award was bestowed during the GreenTech2024 environmental conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

 “Port Canaveral has long held a high standard of environmental responsibility with our commitment to long-term sustainable goals,” said Capt.

Port Canaveral is among the 32 seaports in the U.S. and one of three ports in Florida to earn the Green Marine distinction.

Our ultimate aim is to adopt and implement greener practices with each evaluation.”
