Green Ports: Inland and Seaside Sustainable Transportation Strategies presents the first book to exclusively focus on this important topic that is usually only covered in brief chapters or journal articles that are too theoretical, fragmented or regionally-focused. This book comprehensively and systematically examines the key issues and best practice for understanding green ports and quantifying aspects of their environmental performance. This applied research book will help researchers formulate the needed research questions.
- Includes practical application tools and techniques for increasing sustainability throughout the entire transportation chain
- Provides an overall picture of green ports through a collection of expert specialists
- Examines how ports and surrounding areas are addressing the environmental impacts related to growth in the cruise business
- Presents a theoretical framework to identify best practices for planning and policymaking for the impacts posed by climate change
