The frequent shipping activities have caused severe environmental problems. To realize the goal of emission reduction in shipping, it is important to implement a systematic analysis on how to achieve green ports and green shipping. This paper summarizes the literature on energy savings and emission reduction in shipping from three perspectives, i.e., green ports, green shipping, and green maritime policies. The green ports issues include port management and port technologies; the green shipping issues analyze shipping management and shipping technologies; the green maritime policy issues cover some existing policies and measures and their impacts on shipping industry and environment. This paper also identifies some research gaps and outlines some potential research opportunities, including green port oriented studies, green shipping oriented studies, and emission policy oriented studies.
