The Port of Everett is a certified Green Marine seaport. Green Marine is an environmental certification program for the North American marine industry that is voluntary, transparent and inclusive. The program addresses key environmental issues through 12 performance indicators, and includes shipowners, ports, terminals, seaway corporations, and shipyards.
To maintain certification, the Port benchmarks its annual environmental performance through the program’s self-evaluation guides, has its results verified by an accredited external verifier, and agrees to publish our individual results.
Being a member of Green Marine since 2017, the Port has expressed and has continued to uphold its commitment to the environment at the working waterfront. In June 2021, the Port earned its annual re-certification.
Clean Marina Washington
The Port of Everett Marina is a certified Clean Marina, holding designation at the highest level — the Leadership Award — since program inception in 2007.
The Port earns its title by conducting operations with the goal of protecting the environment, reducing and properly managing hazardous waste, educating boaters on clean boating practices, demonstrating innovative and environmental leadership, protecting salmon, shellfish and other valuable resources and improving safety and working conditions at the Port.
Environmental Compliance Assessment Program
In 2017, the Port of Everett instituted its Environmental Compliance Assessment Program (ECAP) with the goal to further minimize environmental impacts by the Port operating divisions and on-site Port tenants, and to maintain regulatory compliance through education and assistance.
The program seeks to ensure environmental compliance, reduce environmental and/or regulatory liabilities, verify facility activities, promote pollution prevention and environmental stewardship, identify areas of concern and enhance communication on environmental activities between the Port and its tenants.
