Environmental Protection
The waterways our vessels take are sometimes risky! The icy Arctic Ocean, the untamed waves of the Great Lakes, the sandbanks of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, mixed or hazardous cargo, and nearly impossible berthing are some of the dangers that require advanced know-how and flawlessly maintained equipment.

Protecting crewmembers and maintaining an unspoiled natural environment are the starting point for all daily crew activities.

This approach helps protect our rich environment while making everyone more aware of the importance of preserving nature.
