ABSTRACT

The twelfth chapter is dedicated entirely to the development of sustainable maritime containerized transport. The discussion is started with identification of eco-logistics and requirements of sustainable development in the pragmatics of containerization processes in maritime transport. Furthermore, more aspects such as the origin and formal and legal aspects of emission restrictions in maritime transport, maritime transport as a GHG emitter—an imperative for the implementation of a methodology for counting externalities and external costs in maritime transport (including maritime containerized transport)—as well as legal acts and legislation (GHG protocol, Sustainable Development Goals SDG-17) are mentioned. As a methodological consequence, components of GHG/CO2 emission and CO2 equivalent in maritime transport in line with standards, control and verification of emissions generated by maritime transport (MRV CO2/CO2e) are considered. This part of the chapter is concluded with MRV CO2 identification of the procedures and information about standards, control and verification of emissions generated by maritime container terminals. Finally, organizational, technical and operational factors determining lower emissions generated in the operational field of a maritime container terminal (Scope 1 and 2—Scope 3 ultimately) as well as a discussion on a maritime container terminal as an element of a low-/zero-emission sea-land logistic chain are presented. The chapter concludes the considerations of Part 4 of the presented monograph, dealing with sustainable development challenges to maritime containerized transport (leading to the conclusions on preparations of maritime containerized transport for further zero-emission requirements).
