Fednav has proven to be a trailblazer in the shipping industry by partnering with high-profile environmental groups and members of different industries. We are part of various programs aimed at improving the health of the world’s waterways, and of the flora and fauna that live in and around them. As much as possible, we put a greater pressure on ourselves to improve our environmental record ahead of government-enforced shipping regulations.
Our recently renovated corporate offices have presented fresh opportunities to develop new, responsible habits. As part of our commitment to sustainable development, Fednav has decided to join RECYC-QUEBEC's ICI on recycle + program, whose aim is to encourage organizations to become engaged and proactive in improving their management of residual materials. It also recognizes exemplary initiatives in the areas of source reduction, reuse, recovery, and recycling of materials and products.
As part of the Fednav tradition for over 10 years, the GTO organizes an annual shoreline cleanup of the St. Lawrence River bank as part of the Great Canadian Shoreline Cleanup, and recently, Mission 100 tonnes. With the help of our partners the Port of Montreal, Urgence Marine, and Youth of Shipping as well as our families and friends, several dozens of tons of waste were collected over the years. These are subsequently sorted and properly disposed. From plastic straws to a portable toilet bowl, we see all kinds of waste left behind!
