Port of Rotterdam revises vision

The city council of Rotterdam has adopted a revised Port Vision, the core of which is creation of economic and societal value and realising sustainable growth. It was approved by the Port of Rotterdam Authority’s Supervisory Board earlier this year. Now that the city council of Rotterdam has also adopted the revised vision, it finally replaces Port Vision 2030, which dates from 2011.

Said Mr Allard Castelein, Port of Rotterdam Authority CEO: “An intensive process has resulted in a fantastic and widely supported vision that focuses on further increasing the Port of Rotterdam’s leading position with respect to the energy transition and logistics.”

The world around is changing and that also influences the Rotterdam port and industrial complex. These changes include energy transition, raw material transition and digitisation. That was the reason for revising Port Vision 2030. This revised version describes the future perspective for the port and industrial complex based on current insights, and in doing so makes the 2011 vision future proof.

Rotterdam aims to be a frontrunner in sustainable and efficient supply chains. The revised Port Vision has adopted each of the ambitious objectives exactly as stated in the Rotterdam contribution to the Climate Agreement (Rotterdam-Moerdijk). The Sustainable Development Goals adopted by the United Nations for sustainable economic development are also given a central position. In doing so, the aim is to create societal and economic value.
