Port of Rotterdam aims to lead the energy transition

Port of Rotterdam CO2 neutral

In Rotterdam we are building a CO2 neutral port, in line with the Paris Climate Agreement. That is an ambitious and complex task, with a lot of steps to be taken by many different parties. Colloboration is the key for succes here. The energy transition offers enormous opportunities to make the Port of Rotterdam a leading example on a global level. Right here it the transition is possible, all ingredients are present to shape the energy transition and make it happen.

Wuppertal report Transport & Logistics (2018)

The Wuppertal Report,'Deep Decarbonisation Pathway for Transport and Logistics Related to the Port of Rotterdam' describes which transition pathways the transport sector should follow to reduce its CO₂ emissions to the levels established by the Paris Agreement.

Report Wuppertal Industry (2017)

The Port of Rotterdam Authority commissioned the Wuppertal research institute to investigate how we can reduce the port’s carbon emissions drastically while continuing to produce the products society demands. The research revealed three transitional paths we could follow to achieve the objectives. It’s possible that a combination of various techniques from different paths will be followed, rather than just one transitional path.
