In Rotterdam, we are committed to achieving a pleasant, green and safe city. We experiment and innovate, and we seize every opportunity for economic growth. By investing in sustainability for the benefit of and, most importantly, in partnership with the people of Rotterdam, we aim to create a healthier, more resilient city for all those who live and work in Rotterdam. Our objective is to provide better air quality, lower energy bills and more jobs.
The port of Rotterdam has the ambition to be the most sustainable port in the world. By breaking new ground in the way it operates, which includes the development of the Second Maasvlakte, the port of Rotterdam wants to be at the forefront of sustainability and accessibility.
The goal of making Rotterdam cleaner, greener and more sustainable requires a focus on both the city and the port and industrial complex. After all, the port and the city of Rotterdam are inextricably linked.
Under the umbrella of the Rotterdam Climate Initiative, the Port of Rotterdam Authority, Deltalinqs, DCMR Environmental Protection Agency Rijnmond and the City of Rotterdam work as partners to enhance the sustainability of the city, the port and the industrial complex.
We will continue to invest in sustainability and adaptation to climate change in pursuit of a healthy and future-resilient city of Rotterdam for all those who live and work here. Our objective is clean air, more green spaces, dry feet, cleaner energy at lower costs, and job creation in the city as well as in the port and industrial complex. As the largest port city in Europe, we will set an inspiring example to other cities around the world, also in the area of innovation, sustainability, and adaptation to climate change.
After all, the port and the city of Rotterdam are inextricably linked, both in terms of benefits and burdens. For this reason, the RCI has forged an alliance with the Port of Rotterdam Authority, Deltalinqs, VNO-NCW (Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers), the City of Rotterdam, and the province of South Holland, supported by DCMR.
