Ports are closely related to the economy of both the country and the neighbouring countries, especially the region they are located in. Countries whose economic power is based on maritime trade should attach great importance to the selection, construction and development of new ports in order to meet the increasing import and export volume and market demands in the developing and changing world trade with technology. Otherwise, it will be difficult for countries to compete economically in the market, especially in their foreign trade. Climate, raw materials, energy, transport, land, market, strategic situation etc. the selection of a port location to be made by considering the criteria will make great contributions to the development of the regional economy. In addition, it is thought that making the most suitable choices for the environment, considering the concept of a green port, which is still a popular topic, with a proactive environmentalist approach in its construction, will also play a role in encouraging the protection of the ecosystem in which the port is located throughout its lifetime. In this study, Turkey's main ports were examined by using a comprehensive literature review, taking into account the concept of green ports.
