Abstract: As the world starts to experience the negative impacts of global warming, the shipping industry is faced with the challenge to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases and other harmful gases such as sulphur and nitrogen oxides. Ports are the hubs where vessels call at to load and discharge cargo. Therefore, ports play a vital role in implementing regulations for vessels. In recent years, there had been intense discussions concerning emission levels of ports. Port regulators and operators have to work together, in order to have greener and more efficient ports, therefore ensuring sustainability of the maritime industry.In the international maritime industry, there are no specific rules and regulations governing emissions from ports. The International Maritime Organization (IMO) has provided guidelines for ports. In recent years, more regulations and guidelines are making their way to ports around in the world through international conferences, regional co- operations and national initiatives.
