The Port of Rotterdam Authority leases sites in the port to companies and leases out land under long-term leases. Vessels which call at the port pay port dues. The Port Authority uses this revenue to invest in the port and industrial complex, but also to meet obligations such as interest and repayments. The Port Authority is a government corporation. Each year, it pays a part of its profit to its shareholders: the Municipality of Rotterdam and the State.
Building a sustainable future
The ratification of the Paris agreement on climate change gave a powerful boost to the energy transition. We have the complex task as a society and as a port and industrial complex of reducing CO2 emissions by 80 to 95% by 2050. Our annual report provides an insight into the way we aim to tackle this challenge as well as the performance and results of the Port of Rotterdam Authority in 2016.
