Greenport Venlo

Green Ports are an essential part of Dutch agriculture. Challenge is to find a combination of developments in which people, planet and profit are improving. Developing a benchmarking system can make a meaningful contribution.


The aim of this project is to develop a system for benchmarking of the three pillars for regional development of Greenport Venlo. These pillars are:

  • Quality of Life
  • innovation: knowledge, skill, register
  • spatial area development

Therefore, the Foundation Greenport Venlo wants to develop indicators that fit the above pillars. These indicators are also used to monitor the progress of the goals from the Strategic Plan of the foundation. Policymakers and entrepreneurs in Greenport Venlo are central to this project. For them it is important to get the state of affairs of 'their greenport' in focus.
