To maintain a constant temperature of the earth, carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases act like the glass of the greenhouse effect of membrane is needed. But in the last 100 years by increased concentrations of greenhouse gases lead to global warming, was faced with the problem of climate change.
Prepare for the global warming climate change, UNFCC (United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) has been adopted, voluntary recommendations for fighting global warming at this time that there are limits, and binding force of the concrete implementation of a greenhouse gas reduction targets set by the Kyoto Protocol came into force in February 2005.
While a primary responsibility to reduce the period (2008-2012), Reduction states are obliged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, mainly developed countries.
However, in post-Kyoto Protocol system(2013~), developing countries are excluded or substantial greenhouse gas emissions policy was pursue, depending on future negotiations on the country include the reduction is expected.
Government in each country, as well as in several industrial sectors to seek ways for green growth and, the various policy and action plan is ongoing in order to build Green Port in port-related industries
In this study, several measures for reducing greenhouse gas emissions from the carbon tax and the introduction of related tax impact on port-related industrial sector will focus on.
Find out about the background and introduced the concept of a carbon tax, analyzed type of carbon taxes and case studies in each countries and Busan Port area as a backdrop, the introduction of a carbon tax is to investigate the effect in port.
