As Vice Mayor for Sustainability, Clean Air and Energy Transition of the City of Rotterdam, Arno Bonte is committed to a sustainable and energy-efficient city. He is working towards an economy that runs on clean energy, arranging other ways of heating and cooking and creating more wind and solar energy.
With the energy transition, Rotterdam ‘s ambitions are high. Nationally, CO2 emissions need to be reduced by 49% by 2030, and in 2050 Rotterdam needs to be climate neutral. To reach this, far-reaching and radical measures are needed, as Rotterdam is still largely dependent on fossil fuels.
