11 May 2021
How can we help you?

We are committed to ensuring that the port and its environs are safe, healthy and appealing.

Energy in transition

We are committed to combating climate change and want to play a leading role in the global energy transition.

People of Rotterdam about sustainability

Rotterdammers tell what they do about sustainability and what they think of a sustainable port.


The Environmental Law has consequences for granting permits for environmentally harmful activities in the port.

We aim to counter climate change while ensuring that the port area makes a significant contribution to Dutch prosperity and employment.

We are challenging our own organisation. And we are inviting stakeholders in and around the port to collaborate on the challenges we encounter in developing the port. Together we will create economic and social value and realise sustainable growth.

Emission-free in 2050

In 2050, the port of Rotterdam will still be an epicentre of activity and employment. However, this will be created by virtually emission-free industry and shipping.

LED lighting in the port

By 2022, only LED lights will be burning in the port. LED lighting is more economical and safer. So you will see more and more LED lights in public spaces in the port area.
