Port of Venlo’s stakeholder meeting

Port of Venlo’s stakeholder meeting

On 19 April 2024, the Port of Venlo in the Netherlands hosted a stakeholder kick-off meeting to begin calculating the ecological footprint of the Venlo port area, focusing on CO2, NOx, and PM emissions.


BISCI (Maastricht University, Fontys and TNO) will calculate the total emissions of the port. This comprehensive study will gather emissions data from at least ten individual companies as well as ship movements within the port. This initiative is unique as it addresses a gap in current environmental guidelines, which typically cover emissions for individual companies but not for entire areas.


The insights gained from this study will be instrumental in shaping the PIONEERS’ Green Port Master Plan. Furthermore, the results will inform the Rhombus Upside project, the port’s expansion efforts, and the MIRT Realisation Pact Venlo.


Don’t miss the boat! Stay tuned with #PIONEERSeuports as we sail towards sustainable and smart ports!
