Environmental Activities

Preserving and protecting the environment is a key aspect of Marinette Marine's company culture. Before their Tier 1 application, the facility implemented an environmental management system certified to the ISO 14001 standard. Environmental goals for the facility include reducing water and energy consumption and increasing environmental awareness among employees to understand the positive impact of their everyday work. The facility has pursued creative awareness campaigns for its employees to promote water and air quality protection and waste reduction through recycling programs.

In January 2022, Marinette Marine became a participant in another voluntary, environmentally focused program called Green Marine. Green Marine is the largest voluntary environmental certification program for North America's maritime industry.

Other environmental goals for 2022 include:

  • Completing a full transition to LED lights across the facility
  • Implementing drain guards on all spouts in the facility yard
