Carbon Footprint of the Port of Rotterdam

06 May 2021

The Port Authority of Rotterdam has taken strong measures to reduce its carbon footprint. The Port aims to reduce CO2 emissions - including a goal of 20% reduction of the carbon footprint for 2020 compared to 2016 emissions (9,7 kiloton) - through the use of renewable energy, hybrid patrol vehicles and electric and hybrid lease cars:

  • Between 2010 and 2015, a reduction of 10% in the Port Authority‚Äôs carbon footprint has been achieved, in a large part through an initiative to reuse residual heat from industry as heating.
  • The Port has encouraged a shift towards cleaner vessels: both the retrofitting of ships docking in the Port of Rotterdam as well as a shift in its own fleet from diesel to electric and hybrid lease cars.
