abstract:Currently, Taiwan government is heavily investing to promote the so-called “Free Trade and Green Ecological Port” in Kaohsiung. It is easy to find many journal articles discussing the free trade port. However, there are very limited literatures that have looked into the performance of “green ecological port”. How to set up a set of performance indices for a green/ecological port is thus becoming very important from the government’s viewpoint. This research intends to establish the green/ecological port performance indices and quantify the importance of each performance index. Finally, an IPA model is employed to evaluate the overall performance of the ecological ports in Taiwan and abroad. The study reviews several literatures and current practices of six ports to preliminary conclude 22 of the 32 previous indices are important to evaluate the performance of an ecological port (see Table 1). In addition, this research classifies this 22 performance sub-indices into 5 major performance indices (see Figure 1), namely, marine eco-protection, liquid pollution prevention, visual aesthetics & harmonization of port with surroundings, solid waste pollution prevention, and air pollution & carbon-footprint reduction. This research has build up a preliminary AHP structure to modelling the overall ecological performance of most of the major seaports. Hopefully, a set of objective green port performance indices and their weight of importance to the build-up of green port can be concluded by surveying the stakeholders in the port industry both in Taiwan and the other major maritime nations in Asia.
