Clean, Green and Sustainable: Making Waves in the Marine and Shipping Industry

 Registration is closed for this event
GTEx Forum on Port sustainability in Metro Vancouver, July 29, 2015.


Metro Vancouver is home to Canada’s largest port and the third-largest container port in North America, responsible for Canada’s trade with more than 160 world economies. Enabling the trade of approximately $187 billion in goods annually, the Port Metro Vancouver generates an estimated 100,000 jobs, $6.1 billion in wages, and $9.7 billion in GDP across Canada. With the projected volume of world trade doubling by 2030 and tripling by 2050, demand for Canada’s exports will increase with the growing global population and rising middle class. The challenge will be to complement growth in trade and shipping with environmental improvements in both terminal operations and ship performance, striving to minimize impacts on local ecosystems and global emissions. The upcoming July GTEx Forum will feature insights from industry perspectives on green marine innovation from Port Metro Vancouver, Seaspan ULC, and Neptune Bulk Terminals, in a panel discussion to be moderated by Stephen Brown, President of Chamber of Shipping of BC (COSBC). Join us and participate in this informative exchange.
