Keywords: ports, management, environment, legislative recommendations.


The primary challenge in the South-Eastern European ports and former industrial areas is to improve their competitiveness to the level of environment protection. Most shipping emissions in ports are estimated to grow fourfold up to 2050. In order to reduce these projected emissions, strong policies responses will be needed. The main output of this paper will be legislative recommendations, at a transnational and national level, on how to improve the freight transportation system around industrial hubs within the urban context.
