ABSTRACT
The article discusses the significance of the Rotterdam Climate Initiative (RCI) in the Netherlands. It mentions that the initiative is aimed to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 12 million tons in 2025 which is a 50% reduction relative to 1990. It stresses that carbon sequestration (CCS) plays a key role in the Rotterdam Climate Initiative. It states that the carbon dioxide emission reduction initiative can create huge opportunities that will attract business in the area.
