Green Contribution Evaluation Model of Port to City

With the rapid development of port, the negative influences such as the resources occupation, environmental pollution have become immensely serious. Therefore evaluating the green contribution of port to city systematically from the economic, resource and environmental perspective has become an important problem to seek the overall balance between port and urban development. In the paper, the economic promotion, resource consumption, pollution treatment, and environmental loss are taken into the accounting system of port's economic contribution based on the green concept. In addition, the green contribution evaluation model is established. This model is verified by the evaluation of the green contribution of Shanghai port to city from l999 to 2008. The results indicate that the model proposed in the present paper can make up the lack of traditional method which focuses on the positive effects of the economy and ignores the negative impact of resource and environment. Therefore, the model can evaluate the green contribution of port to city comprehensively and objectively.
