Transforming to Sustainable Ocean Economy: Green Ports and Shipping in the Asia-Pacific

Ocean economy is the sum of economic activities from ocean-based industries, together with assets, goods, and services provided by the marine ecosystem. The port and shipping industry is considered an ocean-based industry; an industry facilitating the growth of global trade and economy in the Asia-Pacific. A sustainable ocean economy is a strategy that supports economic development and ocean health as compatible propositions, by balancing between economic benefits and the environment in ocean-based industries. For the port and shipping industry to achieve a sustainable ocean economy, innovative technological advancements such as green ports and ships can be a feasible method. However, the development of green ports and shipping will have cost and operational implications. Policy formulation is considered a key measure to reap the benefits and tackle the challenges of green ports and shipping for a sustainable ocean economy.
