The Port of Rotterdam Authority has launched a new financial scheme supporting projects intended to reduce the shipping sector’s CO2 emissions.
As of today, interested parties can apply for funding via the Incentive Scheme Climate-Friendly Shipping. The scheme runs until the end of 2022.
The port authority has made EUR 5 million (USD 5.7 million) available to this end.
“We wish to play an active part in the reduction of CO2 emissions generated by the shipping sector. Through this scheme, we are able to give various parties just that extra financial push they need to realise a concrete project in this area,” Allard Castelein, CEO of the Port of Rotterdam Authority, explained.
