Rotterdam: a sustainable world port city

Under the umbrella of the Rotterdam Climate Initiative, the Port of Rotterdam Authority, Deltalinqs, DCMR Environmental Protection Agency Rijnmond (hereafter: DCMR) 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 (such as employment, income, activity, and energy) and burdens (think of the environmental footprint and traffic, for instance). 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 Environmental Protection Agency Rijnmond.
