Sustainable Development Goals
CityBarge was founded to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals. Specifically, CityBarge contributes to goals 9, 11 and 13 by making industries more sustainable, increasing the liveability of European cities and by lowering European CO2 emissions.
CityBarge was founded with the support of the Province of South-Holland , within the investment program "Invest to innovate" and after a brainstorm about the revitalization of existing waterways. Together with its partners, Skoon Energy, KOTUG International and FYNLY, CityBarge developed a fully electric push-boat designed for the historic canals. Combined with a push-barge and a system of mini-hubs on the canals, logistics flows in the city center can be moved from the road to the water. Specifically, the flows of waste, packages and construction materials are targeted. This results in a cleaner, safer, and quieter city center.
