At Rotterdam Ahoy, we live in the here and now but are constantly thinking about the future, a sustainable future. A future in a healthy, beautiful and green city. So that our future generations can also enjoy all the beauty we have to offer. Sustainable ambitions cannot be achieved alone. Rotterdam Ahoy is building the future together with partners and stakeholders in various ways.

We are part of the EU Ruggedised project and invest in sustainable solutions for our facilities. If you want to know more about the sustainable solutions within our organisation, check out the Rotterdam Ahoy Sustainability Floorplan. Also, take a look at our Sustainability Brochure.

Rotterdam Ahoy

Some sustainable examples:


  • Rotterdam Ahoy helps reduce greenhouse gases by being completely gas-free, among other things. Ahoy also has a 1,713 m2 moss sedum roof on the Rotterdam Ahoy Convention Centre (RACC). This roof has a CO2-reducing effect; 300 m2 already compensates for 1 tonne of CO2 or a realisation of 5,71 tonnes of compensation. Because it also increases the insulation value of the RACC, less energy is needed for heating or cooling.
  • Solar panels (2562 on the roof of Hall 1 and the office complex and 2880 on the convention centre) realise an energy equivalent to 25% of Ahoy’s annual energy consumption.
  • Ahoy will be a partner in the construction of a water buffer on its premises. With this buffer, rainwater will not be drained away but purified and retained underground. In periods of drought, we can use the stored water for washing our windows and floors, for example.
  • During various concerts, the plastic cups 'from cup to cup’ are collected. At De Vrienden van Amstel LIVE 2022, for instance, 5,680 kg of plastic was collected for reuse.
