Sustainability Trend Report

Sustainable trend at the port of Antwerp

The port of Antwerp is Flanders' economic engine. We want future generations to be able to enjoy the prosperity and the many jobs that the port creates too. We are therefore working to create a sustainable port. We are consciously choosing sustainable growth and putting people, the surroundings and the climate first. This means that they are the touchstone in everything we do and decide. Only in this way can a port ensure sustainable development and be future-proof.


We believe in innovation as a lever for a sustainable future for the port industry, economy and surrounding area.
