The importance of ports for economies worldwide is undeniable, but at the same time ports cause negative externalities. This is particularly problematic when ports are located close to urban areas. Port management must therefore try to mitigate these effects and at the same time ensure the economic prosperity of ports. This development concept is known as green growth. In order to promote green growth, and in particular to achieve a reduction in air emissions, ports can apply equipment, energy or operational measures. The authors present the economic feasibility of different air emissions reduction measures on the case of port of Koper.
