As the World No 4 port in terms of throughput, Tianjin Port has been dedicating itself to the building of an energy-efficient, environment-friendly port and following the intensive, intelligent, green and low-carbon development path while upholding the concept of "building ecological port, sharing blue sea and sky".

Tianjin port has been granted the "pilot unit of green and low-carbon port" by Ministry of Transportation of China and its plan for building green and low-carbon port has been evaluated by experts and funded by national special energy-saving subsidy. According to statistics, the consumption of coal for every RMB 10,000 value add has dropped by above 30 percent, form 0.238 ton in the beginning of 11th Five Year Plan to the present 0.18 ton.

Now, all the gantry cranes for container operation have been powered by electricity in Tianjin Port.

In the future, Tianjin Port will increase the utilization of renewable energy such as natural gas, solar and geothermal energy and further improve environment management, port green coverage and overall energy and environment management level.

By 2017, an energy-efficient, environment-friendly, green and low-carbon port will have been basically completed.
