To realize the low-carbon development of the regional economy, it is inseparable from the support of low-carbon logistics. The logistics industry will play an important role in the development of the regional low-carbon economy. The purpose of this article is to study the carbon emission assessment of integrated port logistics based on the low-carbon environment. First, it summarizes the domestic and foreign related low-carbon emission reduction research; secondly, it analyzes the factors that affect the port low-carbon emission reduction efficiency; then summarizes the port low-carbon emission reduction efficiency evaluation indicators and the port integrated logistics carbon in a low-carbon environment. Construction of emission assessment system. Finally, taking M Port as an example, the data envelopment method and principal component analysis method are used to realize the evaluation of the low-carbon emission reduction efficiency of Dalian Port. The experimental results show that in terms of service types, the emissions of logistics services account for the vast majority, basically reaching 80%, so reducing the carbon emissions of logistics services will be the top priority.
