Mission, vision and strategy



Creating pioneering growth, that is our mission. That is why we continually strive for good environmental quality and areal quality. Also, we are constantly focused on our surroundings and the societal aspects, inside and outside the company.

We zorgen ervoor dat onze inspanningen en doelstellingen in lijn zijn met het Nederlandse Energieakkoord voor duurzame groei (2013) en het Grondstoffenakkoord. En met internationale MVO-richtlijnen zoals de OESO-richtlijnen en de Sustainable Development Goals We ensure that our efforts and targets are in line with the Dutch Energy Agreement for sustainable growth (2013), the Commodities Agreement and international CSR guidelines. Such as the OECD guidelines and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This enables us to demonstrate our value creation in a wider context.


Vision 2030

By 2030, the Amsterdam port region will be more than a hub. It will be a dynamic metropolitan port that combines the strengths of Amsterdam's three main assets:

  • The world-class logistics hub
  • The high-quality regional industry
  • The diverse urban services industry

By optimally connecting these three assets, we create cross-pollination, synergy and innovation. This ensures that the Amsterdam port region remains one of Europe's leading ports and a driver of the economy. One that is fast, smart and clean.


Based on the vision, we have defined our strategy 2021-2025: Taking the lead. By 2025, we want to be a leading European seaport, leading the way in the transition to a sustainable society.

In this video, Eduard de Visser, Director of Strategy & Innovation, explains what our plans are for the coming years.

Strategic goals

In order to be that leading European seaport by 2025 and to lead the way in the transition to a sustainable society, we are moving forward with seven concrete goals. From the establishment of circular process industry to keeping the shipping industry on schedule.

Boegpraat, the podcast

By 2025, we want to be the frontrunner in the transition to a sustainable society. But this change won't happen overnight and gives us something to think about on a daily basis. Because we believe collaboration, we invited companies and partners from the port for a conversation on our podcast Boegpraat.
