The Paris Climate Agreement makes it very clear that we need to take significant steps towards the decarbonization or our economy by 2050. At Port of Rotterdam we aim to bring the port in line with the Paris Climate Agreement objectives. In partnerships with companies, we are working towards a CO2 neutral port. 

This demands radical innovation and new technologies. Industry emissions in this area account for almost one fifth of our country’s total emissions. This means that Rotterdam has a lot to offer for the climate.

The energy transition comprises many steps by many parties over a long period, through which we can work step by step towards a CO2 neutral industrial complex. Waiting is not an option! That is why we have initiated 7 programmes in which we develop projects together with partners. Over forty projects have now started. We follow a dual strategy: we help the existing industry to make drastic reductions in their CO2 emissions while also attracting new, sustainable industry. In partnerships with these companies, we are working towards a CO2 neutral port. Will you join us?
