In 2025 the municipality of Amsterdam wants as much emission-free traffic in the city as possible, to improve the health of people in and around the city. The municipality is working together with the business community to achieve this goal. What measures are being taken to achieve a zero-emission Amsterdam?
One of the measures is an emission-free zone for freight vehicles within the ring road, which will be introduced in 2025. In the meantime, a transitional arrangement will prepare companies for this movement towards emission-free transport.
Since 1 January 2018, Amsterdam has had an environmental zone for mopeds and motorcycles. Amsterdam wants to focus even more on electric transport in the coming years. For example, the municipality is working with taxi organizations to achieve an emission-free taxi sector by 2025. The purchase of electric taxis will be subsidized and sufficient charging points will be provided. Taxi drivers who drive electric will also receive certain privileges, such as priority on cab ranks.
Sustainability at ALC
Amsterdam Logistic Cityhub is happy to contribute to a sustainable Amsterdam. Designed for emission-free logistics, ALC facilitates smarter, faster and cleaner transport by road and water. In doing so, ALC helps its users achieve their sustainability goals, as well as those of the municipality of Amsterdam. The facility has more than 250 electric charging points for various means of transport. With a private quay of 180 meters, ALC stimulates (electric) transport through the canal network of the city, which is much more sustainable than transport by road. By enabling smart collaborations between users, transport movements are minimized, reducing emissions. For maximum sustainability, solar panels and wind turbines will be installed on the site.
