This study is carried out with the aim of developing sustainable port management in container terminals, allowing the volume of container traffic to grow, while at the same time reducing the consumption of energy and natural resources, the volume of waste generated and the negative impacts on social systems and ecosystems in the areas of influence of the port. The analysis of sustainability will be carried out using KPIs, which are management tools widely used by companies worldwide to measure and evaluate the performance of their processes and manage them in the most effective and efficient manner. As a main conclusion, it is indicated that it is not possible to reach the objective pursued of finding a relationship that could link the productivity indicators and the environmental indicators in the Spanish container terminals. The container terminals of the Spanish port system are heterogeneous, both in terms of operational management and environmental sustainability. They all operate with very different systems.
