Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) provides container storage and transhipment with maximum efficiency. Seamless access to Europe: seamless transit of containers from all over the world to consumers and businesses in Europe. And vice versa.
Wednesday September 27th 2017, Rotterdam World Gateway (RWG) has won the Environment Award at the Lloyd’s List Global Awards Gala 2017 in London.
Winning Lloyd’s List Environment Award is a recognition for RWG that the organization has maximally reduced pollution of the environment as a result of maritime sources. Sustainability has been one of the key starting points in the design of the newly built container terminal. Being sustainable is an integral approach that is not only reflected in the buildings and the terminal equipment but also in our operational set-up and methods of inland transportation. RWG has won this category with what judges described as its long term thinking towards environmental quality.
On Friday September 15th, 40 employees of Rotterdam Container Terminals (APMT, ECT and RWG) and the Port Authority Rotterdam contributed to the Go Green 2017 event. This event, part of the worldwide and yearly recurring Go Green Campaign, aims to help contribute to a better environment. For the event the volunteers planted sea buckthorn on a dike on Maasvlakte 2, a scrub that naturally occurs in the Dutch coastal zone. The idea behind the action is to protect the habitat of different bird specifies by using the power of nature. The new planted scrubs will - over a period of time - prevent people from walking into the bird valley. After the planting action the group went on a bird watch tour guided by an expert from bureau Stadsnatuur Rotterdam.
