André van Hassent, Asset Manager at Port of Rotterdam, has just confirmed his participation to our first Dredging Today Conference (DTC).
During the event, which will take place on 9 and 10 October 2017 at Amsterdam RAI, van Hassent will be speaking about ‘sustainability in dredging contracts’; how the Port of Rotterdam achieved ambitious sustainability goals for their supply chain and stimulated sustainable initiatives from the market.
The Port of Rotterdam has the ambition to be the most sustainable port in the world. By breaking new ground in the way it operates, the Port of Rotterdam wants to be at the forefront of sustainability and accessibility.
“This way, we strengthen Dutch and European competitive power and make Rotterdam Rijnmond a region where people like to live, work and recreate,” the Port said.
The Dredging Today Conference will offer a forward-looking agenda for the industry addressing economic, social and environmental challenges and the capabilities of the dredging industry to tackle these.
DTC is distinctive in its choice of speakers from around the globe, its room for dialogue and its attention for business rather than technology. The conference is supported by the International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC).
An important part of the conference is dedicated to climate change, adaptation and resilience. Topics include the impact of climate change on the dredging industry, available funds for climate adaptation solutions, changing client demands and future proofing business strategies.
