What are green ports and why they're crucial to sustainable global commerce?

Green port refers to sustainable and climate-friendly practices in port infrastructure development. It is a contemporary trend of the maritime industry where the priority is on pollution prevention, clean technology, clean shipping and clean port services. Sustainability consists of 3 key elements:

  • Ecological Balance
  • Port economic stability
  • Social Development

The concept of green ports advocates with ports to minimise or eliminate harms to the environment and to improve the port’s efficiency. For a port to achieve green port status, it has to adhere to the green port concept and measure the port’s green performance.

A green port uses systems and technologies that prevent the environmental pollution and enable to eliminate or reduce the negative impact of port activities on the environment.
