September 21, 2022: Vancouver, BC – Tracesafe Inc., (“TraceSafe” or the “Company”) (CSE: TSF), a global leader in location-aware Internet of Things (IoT) platforms for large-scale enterprise operations and managed decarbonization, has become a partner member of Green Marine, a voluntary environmental certification program for the North American marine industry. This membership will allow TraceSafe to connect with the Green Marine network, including over 40 ship owners, and to showcase its services helping them improve their environmental performance , and therefore help them achieve their environmental and carbon-neutrality goals. By using TraceSafe's carbon management solution, ShiftCarbon, Green Marine participants will be able to measure and offset their carbon emissions.
With over 400 members, Green Marine is an inclusive, rigorous and transparent initiative that brings together several types of participants: ship owners, ports, terminals, shipyards, and the Seaway corporations based in Canada and the United States. The program’s membership also encompasses associations, supporters, and partners that each in their own way support participants in their efforts to reduce their environmental footprint. Green Marine collaborated with Surfrider Foundation Europe to export the environmental certification program and to launch Green Marine Europe in 2020. TraceSafe’s membership with the environmental program also includes visibility with Green Marine Europe's members.
Of the 14 trillion dollars spent each year on transportation, over 90 percent goes on journeys by sea. The difficult-to-decarbonize maritime shipping sector was not part of the Paris agreement and is projected to account for an increasing portion of global CO2 emissions. The industry currently accounts for 2% and 3% of the global CO2 emissions- according to S&P Global Platts Analytics — but scientists have projected that it could account for 17% of total annual CO2 emissions by 2050. With ShiftCarbon, marine organizations will have access to experts and technology to reduce and offset carbon emissions efficiently.
“We are honored and excited to become a partner member of Green Marine, a leader in environmental stewardship for the marine industry. Their participants represent the most important names in the marine and shipping industry in North America and we can't wait to help them reach their climate goals with ShiftCarbon,” said Wayne Lloyd, TraceSafe CEO. “We have a deep understanding of the maritime industry, and we are bringing those insights to our carbon management solutions and building something that will cater to the specific needs of the industry now and in future.”
As part of this membership, TraceSafe will join the list of other prolific Green Marine partners in energy, logistics and industry services.
