Green Initiative

mpc swanAs a leader in the world of environmental services, Marine Pollution Control is committed to environmentally responsible operations.  Our ongoing efforts have led us to develop innovative technologies for cleaning up spills, including our current effort developing a system for the recovery of submerged oil from lakes, rivers and other bodies of water up to depths of 200 feet (U.S. Patent No. 7,597,811; Canadian Patent Pending).  Over the years, MPC has invented and introduced numerous devices and processes to improve our ability to clean up spills, a fact which was recognized by Seatrade in 1990 when it presented MPC with its first award for achievement “Countering Marine Pollution.”

MPC Green Initiative LogoWe continue to developed programs and work with our customers to educate their key personnel about spill prevention and proper waste management.  We also work with our customers on other environmental programs such as a Zero Landfill Initiative.  Our Compliance team works with customers’ teams to review all waste generation processes and current disposal methodologies. Through our combined efforts and focus on best practices, we identify opportunities for the re-use and recycling of materials, as well as waste reduction.  In addition to being good for the environment, these programs often save customers money and help demonstrate to regulators and the community at large their efforts to become good stewards of the environment.



Marine Pollution Control is committed to promoting sustainability.  Our business is guided by respect for all living things and by our determination to promote wise stewardship of the planet our children will inherit.   We will rely on best practices to achieve economic, environmental, and social well-being for ourselves, our customers, our suppliers, and our community.

As we move forward, we will

  • Include sustainability considerations in our decision making processes
  • Foster awareness of sustainability inside and outside the company
  • Develop procedures and guidelines to help us minimize the negative economic, environmental, and social impacts of our activities
  • Regularly review for continuous improvement our business policies and practices within a sustainability framework
