  • Green ports | Royal HaskoningDHV


    Green port operations

    In ports around the world, pressure is rising to ‘go green’ – whether that is transitioning to Net Zero Carbon and reducing emissions or in meeting the demands of the public and industry bodies alike in operating more efficiently and with greater sustainability. Having smart and green solutions at the heart of port operations offers the opportunity to meet this challenge whilst delivering business continuity and economic efficiencies. 
  • Sustainability

    Water for industry

    Water affects industries’ bottom lines. Water shortages, extreme weather events and climate change mean that industries must choose how rather than if they improve their resilience and the sustainability of their water use. Managing water better is an opportunity for industry to strengthen competitiveness and attract investments. At the same time this secures their license to operate, reduces financial losses and altogether ensures business continuity while delivering social value.

Accelerating the energy transition

With the onslaught of climate change, the urgent need to reshape our energy landscape is transforming governments, businesses and citizens alike. What does this transition mean for our cities? What are the possibilities, risks and opportunities ahead?  How should your business adapt to this changing world?
