Mission and vision

Our mission is to create pioneering value. This mission flows over into our vision for 2030, in which we see the Amsterdam port area as a dynamic, international metropolis port, which characterizes itself by synergizing the following: 

  • Port, industry, and circular economy in the city and region 
  • Worldwide cargo flows, regional recycling, local energy production, and manufacturing

The vision forms the base for our strategy 2021-2025: Take the lead. By 2025, we want to be a leading European sea port, a frontrunner in the transition to a sustainable society.

Business November 15 . 2023
Together with a wide variety of partners, Port of Amsterdam announced three agreements during the H2 Connecting Event in Duisburg, which bolster the port’s position as a key supplier of renewable hydrogen and its derivatives to the German market. The aim of the H2 Connecting Event, presided over by His Majesty the King of the Netherlands Willem-Alexander, is to strengthen the collaboration between the Netherlands and Germany in the field of renewable hydrogen, as well as to lay the foundation for intra-European corridors, with Spanish producers potentially supplying German off-takers via the Netherlands. The three agreements signed by Port of Amsterdam pursue these same goals, and seek to leverage the existing partnerships Port of Amsterdam has with prominent prospective producers.
