The first part of the article describes the trend and drivers towards application of environmental measures in port sector. The second part describes the application of environmental measures and social elements at Port of Koper and analyses the main fields of environmental development. The Port of Koper can be used as the case platform for other similar and equally sized ports in the region, therefore a six pillar environ-mental with a social pillar platform is presented. The study results could help port management to define a scenario for a faster introduction of environmental and social objectives and measures in order to follow sustainable development and position itself in the future green and sustainable supply chains.
